The statement that Eric Rivera gave to detectives, admitting to taking part in the burglary and shooting Sean Taylor, was played in court today. The Defense has suggested the confession was coerced. The Detective testified that when he spoke to Rivera, that Rivera was relaxed and quite forthcoming, even “eager” to talk to them. The Defense will really mount its case when Rivera’s attorneys begin their cross-examination of the Detective. That’s where they will try to demonstrate coercion, through their questions to the Detective.
I can’t tell if the State concluded their questioning of the Detective from the stories I’ve read so far, but I would expect the cross to occur tomorrow.
