Hutto v. Ross, 429 U.S. 28 (1976)

Hutto v. Ross

No. 75-1726

Decided November 1, 1976

429 U.S. 28


Respondent's confession to a crime was not per se inadmissible at his criminal trial as being involuntary merely because it was made as a result of an agreed-upon but unexecuted plea bargain that did not call for such a confession. Where the confession does not appear to have been the result of "any direct or implied promises'" or any coercion on the prosecution's part, it was not involuntary.

Certiorari granted; 531 F.2d 94, reversed and remanded.
