Accordingly, when the Sixth Amendment right to counsel attaches, it encompasses offenses that, even if not formally charged, would be considered the same offense under the Blockburger test. In predicting that the offense-specific rule will prove disastrous to suspects' constitutional rights and will permit the police almost total license to conduct unwanted and uncounseled interrogations, respondent fails to appreciate two critical considerations. There would be little justification for this extension of a rule that, even in a more limited application, rests on a doubtful rationale. | Rehearing Denied June 23, 1938.

Albert Belle and, to reach way back, Ty Cobb On to the semi-finals. Court of Civil Appeals of Texas, El Paso. Fourth, the particular aspect of the right here at issuethe rule that the police ordinarily must communicate with the defendant through counsel-has important limits. A court-made rule that prevents a suspect from even making this choice serves little purpose, especially given the regime of Miranda and Edwards. Thus, an armed robber who reaches across a store counter, grabs the cashier, and demands "your money or your life," may through that single instance of conduct have committed several "offenses," in the majority's sense of the term, including armed robbery, assault, battery, trespass, use of a firearm to commit a felony, and perhaps possession of a firearm by a felon, as well. It is the commencement of a formal prosecution, indicated by the initiation of adversary judicial proceedings, that marks the beginning of the Sixth Amendment right. Both the majority and concurring opinions suggest that a suspect's ability to invoke his Fifth Amendment right and "refuse any police questioning" offers that suspect adequate constitutional protection. See, e.g., Brown v. Ohio, 432 U. S. 161, 164-166. Service 4633 (U.S. June 9, 2000) Brief Fact Summary. 2d 223, 236 (1995) (murder and making false statements charges), cert.

Cobb, 532 U.S. 162 (2001), is an important 2001 Supreme Court criminal procedure decision which held that the Sixth Amendment right to counsel is offense-specific and does not always extend to offenses that are closely related to those where the right has been attached. This case focuses upon the meaning of a single word, "offense," when it arises in the context of the Sixth Amendment. This is not to suggest that this Court has previously addressed and decided the question presented by this case. Compare Me. DOCKET NO. He denied involvement. Thus, in all but the rarest of cases, the Court's decision today will have no impact whatsoever upon a defendant's ability to protect his Sixth Amendment right. He also informed police that his wife and daughter were missing. The victims of the murders were also victims of the burglary. terrogation and that the suspect had not validly waived his right to counsel by responding to the officer. defendants retain the ability under Miranda to refuse any police questioning, and, indeed, charged defendants presumably have met with counsel and have had the opportunity to discuss whether it is advisable to invoke those Fifth Amendment rights. Even though the Sixth Amendment right to counsel has not attached to uncharged offenses, defendants retain the ability under Miranda to refuse any police questioning, and, indeed, charged defendants presumably have met with counsel and have had the opportunity to discuss whether it is advisable to invoke those Fifth Amendment rights. We hold that our decision in McNeil v. Wisconsin, 501 U. S. 171 (1991), meant what it said, and that the Sixth Amendment right is "offense specific. But it is the dissent's vague iterations of the " `closely related to' " or " `inextricably intertwined with' " test, post, at 10, that would defy simple application. This statement, however, cannot justify the overruling of Jackson. Cobb made no such assertion here, yet JUSTICE BREYER'S dissent rests upon the assumption that the Jackson rule should operate to exclude the confession no matter.

Firefox, or 2000 WL 275644, *3 (2000) (citations omitted). 259, 277-278, 645 A. That means that most of the different crimes mentioned above are not the "same offense." These events may be quite independent of the suspect's election to remain silent, the interest which the Edwards rule serves to protect with respect to Miranda and the Fifth Amendment, and it thus makes little sense for a protective rule to attach absent such an election by the suspect. In the course of those conversations, Moulton made various incriminating statements regarding both the thefts for which he had been charged and additional crimes. the offense charged, it also attaches to any other offense that is very closely related factually to the offense charged."

Court of Civil Appeals of Texas, El Paso. Under many States' laws, for example, the statute defining assault and the statute defining robbery each requires proof of a fact that the other does not. Judges, lawyers, and law professors often disagree about how to apply it. The Blockburger test has been applied to delineate the scope of the Fifth Amendment's Double Jeopardy Clause, which prevents multiple or successive prosecutions for the "same offense." Cobb tried to argue that it was violating the 6th amendment. Respondent continued to deny involvement. Please try again. The court held that "once the right to counsel attaches to. versarial proceedings, he should not be forced to confront the police during interrogation without the assistance of counsel. Respondent suggests that Brewer implicitly held that the right to counsel attached to the factually related murder when the suspect was arraigned on the abduction charge. The language used lacks the precision for which police officers may hope; and it requires lower courts to specify its meaning further as they apply it in individual cases. And to the extent Moulton spoke to the matter at all, it expressly referred to the offense-specific nature of the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. But the acceptance of counsel at an arraignment or similar proceeding only begs the question: acceptance of counsel for what? These considerations are sufficient. That is because criminal codes are lengthy and highly detailed, often proliferating "overlapping and related statutory offenses" to the point where prosecutors can easily "spin out a startlingly numerous series of offenses from a single ... criminal transaction." While under arrest for an unrelated offense, respondent confessed to a home burglary, but denied knowledge of a woman and child's disappearance from the home. The father then snitched on his son and was sentenced to death.

New York v. Belton, 453 U. S. 454, 458 (1981) (noting importance of clear rules to guide police behavior). First, there can be no doubt that a suspect must be apprised of his rights against compulsory self-incrimination and to consult with an attorney before authorities may conduct custodial interrogation. In this sense, we could just as easily describe the Sixth Amendment as "prosecution specific," insofar as it prevents discussion of charged offenses as well as offenses that, under Blockburger, could not be the subject of a later prosecution. Raymond Levi COBB, Appellant, v. The STATE of Texas. Pp. Second, the Constitution does not negate society's interest in the police's ability to talk to witnesses and suspects, even those who have been charged with other offenses. Respondent continued to deny involvement. one from the other. Texas v. Cobb, 532 U.S. 162 (2001), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the Sixth Amendment right to counsel is offense-specific and does not always extend to offenses that are closely related to those where the right has been attached. Syllabus. Every profession is competent to define the standards of conduct for its members, but such standards are obviously not controlling in interpretation of constitutional provisions. It is also worth noting that, contrary to the dissent's suggestion, see post, at 1-2, 3, there is no "background principle" of our Sixth Amendment jurisprudence establishing that there may be no contact between a defendant and police without counsel present. Justice Kennedy, Justice Scalia, and Justice Thomas, if not the majority, apparently believe these protections constitutionally unimportant, for, in their view, "the underlying theory of Jackson seems questionable." In Brewer, a suspect in the abduction and murder of a 10-year-old girl had fled from the scene of the crime in Des Moines, Iowa, some 160 miles east to Davenport, Iowa, where he surrendered to police. At the time he confessed to Odessa police, respondent had been indicted for burglary of the Owings residence, but he had not been charged in the murders of Margaret and Kori Rae. J.). It remains only to apply these principles to the facts at hand. Maine v. Moulton, supra, at 176. Justice Breyer, with whom Justice Stevens, Justice Souter, and Justice Ginsburg join, dissenting. The Court's opinion is altogether sufficient to explain why the decision of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals should be reversed for failure to recognize the offense-specific nature of the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. 121 S.Ct.

Cobb, 532 U.S. 162 (2001), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the Sixth Amendment right to counsel is offense-specific and does not always extend to offenses that are closely related to those where the right has been attached. This case requires us to determine whether an "offense"-for Sixth Amendment purposes-includes factually related aspects of a single course of conduct other than those few acts that make up the essential elements of the crime charged. COBB v. STATE; COBB v. STATE. The judgment of the Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas is reversed. Third, once this right attaches, law enforcement officials are required, in most circumstances, to deal with the defendant through counsel rather than directly, even if the defendant has waived his Fifth Amendment rights. See Miranda v. Arizona, 530 U. S. 428, 435 (2000) (quoting Miranda). He later … Gregory S. Coleman, Solicitor General of Texas, argued the cause for petitioner. The majority's approach is inconsistent with any common understanding of the scope of counsel's representation. With him on the briefs were John Cornyn, Attorney General, Andy Taylor, First Assistant Attorney General, and S. Kyle Duncan, Assistant Solicitor General. In Maine v. Moulton, which the majority points out "expressly referred to the offense-specific nature of the Sixth Amendment right to counsel," ante, at 170, we treated burglary and theft as the same offense for Sixth Amendment purposes. April 2, 2001. But, more to the point, the simple-sounding Blockburger test has proved extraordinarily difficult to administer in practice. *Briefs of amici curiae urging reversal were filed for the State of Ohio et al. We have since applied the Blockburger test to delineate the scope of the Fifth Amendment's Double Jeopardy Clause, which prevents multiple or successive prosecutions for the "same offence." P. 11. Respondent contends that, in affirming reversal of both the theft and burglary charges, the Moulton Court must have concluded that Moulton's Sixth Amendment right to counsel attached to the burglary charge. JUSTICE KENNEDY, JUSTICE SCALIA, and JUSTICE THOMAS, if not the majority, apparently believe these protections constitutionally unimportant, for, in their view, "the underlying theory of Jackson seems questionable." * Chief Justice Rehnquist delivered the opinion of the Court. Hagans v. Lavine, 415 U. S. 528, 535, n. 5 (1974) ("[W]hen questions of jurisdiction have been passed on in prior decisions sub silentio, this Court has never considered itself bound when a subsequent case finally brings the jurisdictional issue before us"). Moulton is similarly unhelpful to respondent. See, e.g., Brown v. Ohio, 432 U. S. 161, 164-166 (1977). But the Court today decides that "offense" means the crime set forth within "the four corners of a charging instrument," along with other crimes that "would be considered the same offense" under the test established by Blockburger v. United States, 284 U. S. 299 (1932). See, e. g., Brown v. Ohio, 432 U. S. 161, 164-166. In the present case, police scrupulously followed Miranda's dictates when questioning respondent.2 Second, it is critical to recognize that the Constitution does not negate society's interest in the ability of police to talk to witnesses and suspects, even those who have been charged with other offenses. At the very least, we should answer it in a way that does not undermine those objectives. In December 1993, Lindsey Owings reported to the Walker County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office that the home he shared with his wife, Margaret, and their 16-month-old daughter, Kori Rae, had been burglarized. is well illustrated by the impossibility of questioning Cobb about the murders without eliciting admissions about the burglary. 2d 1006, 1010 1011 (Pa. Super. In November 1995, respondent, free on bond in the burglary case, was living with his father in Odessa, Texas. Held: Because the Sixth Amendment right to counsel is "offense specific," it does not necessarily extend to offenses that are "factually related" to those that have actually been charged. McNeil v. Wisconsin, 501 U.S. at 178; see also Arizona v. Roberson, 486 U.S. at 685. Respondent Raymond Levi Cobb lived across the street from the Owings. The right "cannot be invoked once for all future prosecutions," and it does not forbid "interrogation unrelated to the charge." It is also worth noting that, contrary to the dissent's suggestion, see post, at 177-178, 179, there is no "background principle" of our Sixth Amendment jurisprudence establishing that there may be no contact between a defendant and police without counsel present. Respondent then gave a written statement confessing to the burglary, but he denied knowledge relating to the disappearances. SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES. 99-1702, Taxes against Cobb.

RAYMOND LEVI COBB ON WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS OF TEXAS [April 2, 2001] Justice Breyer, with whom Justice Stevens, Justice Souter, and Justice Ginsburg join, dissenting. Accordingly, we held that a defendant's statements regarding offenses for which he had not been charged were admissible notwithstanding the attachment of his Sixth Amendment right to counsel on other charged offenses. The majority's rule permits law enforcement officials to question those charged with a crime without first approaching counsel, through the simple device of asking questions about any other related crime not actually charged in the indictment. , 214 Ill.
