United States v. Olson

United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit

450 F.3d 655 (2006)

Facts

Pedro Martinez (defendant) was tried and convicted in federal court for racketeering and murder. During the investigation, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Agent Daniel Craft brought Martinez into the United States attorney’s office for questioning. While waiting for Martinez’s counsel to arrive for questioning, Craft made a remark that if Martinez cooperated, he could get a 10-year plea deal from the assistant United States attorney prosecuting the case. A couple of days later, Martinez returned for a meeting with Craft, as well as Assistant United States Attorneys Larsen and Moreno-Taxman. During the meeting, Martinez was confronted by Moreno-Taxman with evidence linking him to multiple murders. In response, Martinez corrected certain parts of Moreno-Taxman’s account, which implicated Martinez in the murders. At trial, Martinez filed a motion to suppress the statements that he made during the meeting. The district court denied the motion and the statements were admitted. Martinez was convicted. On appeal, Martinez argued that he made those statements based on the reasonable belief that he was engaging in plea discussions due to remarks made by Agent Craft.
