U.S. Supreme Court

Clewis v. Texas, 386 U.S. 707 (1967)

Clewis v. Texas

No. 648

Argued March 15, 1967

Decided April 24, 1967

386 U.S. 707

Syllabus

Petitioner was convicted of murder after a trial in which his confession was introduced in evidence over his objection that it was not voluntary. The conviction was affirmed on appeal.

Held: On the "totality of the circumstances" in this case, the confession cannot be held to have been voluntary, and its use as evidence against petitioner deprived him of due process of law. Cf. Davis v. North Carolina, 384 U. S. 737 (1966).

Pp. 386 U. S. 708-712.

415 S.W.2d 654, reversed.
