United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit
995 F.2d 793 (8th Cir. 1993)
Patrick Joseph Greene (defendant) was indicted on five drug-related charges. Prior to trial, Greene filed a motion to suppress statements he made to a DEA agent at the time his house was searched and at the time he was arrested. The DEA agent was told by the prosecuting attorney to determine if Greene wanted to take a plea bargain. The agent discussed a plea bargain with Greene, but stated that he could not make any promises other than his ability to tell the prosecuting attorney of Greene’s willingness to cooperate. Greene argued that the statements he made were part of a plea negotiation and thus inadmissible. The trial court denied his motion and admitted his statements into evidence. Greene appealed.
