No, I didn't turn around. Measured against this standard, many state rules would not be constitutionally required. The arresting officers, however, testified that Alexander had not been beaten. What did you have to do? Guards with seniority, he said, often request transfers to other prisons. No response. And in contrast to the facts in Escobedo at no time from Alexander's arrival at the stationhouse until his confession to DiBenedetto later that evening did any attorney appear at the stationhouse or call the stationhouse requesting to speak to Alexander; Alexander, while in detention, was repeatedly and carefully warned of his constitutional right to counsel and, most significantly, at no time before or during his various discussions with the police officers or the prosecutor at the stationhouse did he, despite his undeniable familiarity with his right to counsel, protest that he wished to consult with an attorney. §§ 2254(d)(6), (7). 155b.

Phillips, 87 Misc.2d 613, 628, 384 N.Y.S.2d 906, 916 (1975), and "unique misjudgment," id., at 631, 384 N.Y.S.2d, at 918.

TOP. In response to DiBenedetto's questions, Alexander gave an extremely comprehensive statement which fully implicated him in the robbery and murder at the Bohack's supermarket in Brooklyn.4.

Here, the prosecutors' failure to disclose the juror's job application, although requiring a post-trial hearing on juror bias, did not deprive respondent of the fair trial guaranteed by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. . Harold Walker v. Vincent R. Mancusi, Superintendent, Attica Correctional Facility, 467 F.2d 51 (2d Cir. Then I heard the second shot. Respondent's original motion to vacate his conviction was based on the fact that a juror in respondent's case, one John Dana Smith, submitted during the trial an application for employment as a major felony investigator in the District Attorney's Office.3 Smith had learned of the position from a friend who had contacts within the office and who had inquired on Smith's behalf without mentioning Smith's name or the fact that he was a juror in respondent's trial. Due process means a jury capable and willing to decide the case solely on the evidence before it, and a trial judge ever watchful to prevent prejudicial occurrences and to determine the effect of such occurrences when they happen. In cases like this one, an evidentiary hearing can never adequately protect the right to an impartial jury. This is an appeal from a judgment order of the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, Curtin, J., denying without an evidentiary hearing a petition seeking the issuance of a writ of habeas corpus.

At about 6:30 a. m. on September 8, 1971, the police arrested one Robert Smith for the murder of Higgins and upon his arrest Smith immediately confessed and implicated Alexander, the petitioner-appellant here, in the robbery and murder. These are people who manage the correctional facility.

The Court held that a prosecutor's suppression of requested evidence "violates due process where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment, irrespective of the good faith or bad faith of the prosecution." Adoption of a conclusive presumption of bias in these limited circumstances would not be without precedent; such presumptions of juror bias have ancient historical roots. 1417, 10 L.Ed.2d 663 (1963), it ruled that the trial court should have granted a request for a change in venue, when the entire community had seen the defendant confess to the crime in a police interrogation broadcast on television. 347, 283 N.Y.S.

Q. A Dodge. 2d 782 (1977), unless one of the eight exceptions specified in 28 U.S.C. Pp. At a hearing on the motion before the same judge who had presided at the trial, the motion was denied, the judge finding "beyond a reasonable doubt" that the events giving rise to the motion did not influence the verdict. They did instruct attorneys in the office not to contact Smith until after the trial had ended, and took steps to insure that they would learn no information about Smith that had not been revealed during voir dire.

However, the state court judge's findings that there had been no duress and that "there was no merit to defense contentions made during the course of the hearing that the defendant, either because of his drug habit or For any other reason, was unable to understand the proceedings," (emphasis supplied) seem to foreclose any argument that, based on any testimony at the hearing, Alexander had been underfed and thereby enervated, so that the confession he ultimately made to Assistant District Attorney DiBenedetto was involuntary. Mrs. Alexander, had she testified at the hearing on Alexander's pretrial motion to suppress, would have corroborated the story related by Alexander and Smith. wyoming county–attica legal aid bureau, warsaw (leah r. nowotarski of counsel), for petitioner–appellant.

What did you do with the gun at that time? Id., at 230, 74 S.Ct., at 451 (emphasis added). In this case, where there was evidence that juror Smith had a serious conflict of interest, and where that conflict would inevitably distort his perspective on the case, the majority nevertheless holds that the juror's simple assertion, after the verdict, that he was not biased sufficiently protects respondent's right to trial by an impartial jury. (possibility that jury selection procedures that exclude Negroes might result in bias against defendant is sufficient to justify invalidation of those procedures); see also n. 2 supra.

When Detective Schneider notified a second officer, Detective Cambridge, as to what had occurred, the latter entered the locker room and again informed Alexander of his Miranda rights. As I have already suggested, I have serious doubts whether an evidentiary hearing of this nature could ever be reliable. The failure to disclose possible juror bias can be analogized to a prosecutor's knowing use of perjured testimony. After further probing the officer's knowledge concerning the circumstances surrounding the commission of the crime, Alexander further stated, in substance, according to Detective Cambridge, that "(t)wo of Gene's regular partners had to go south for a funeral, and Gene said to me and the little guy we didn't have to do anything, one of us would stand by the door and the other would take the registers. ) decision and ORDER denying petition for writ of habeas corpus proceedings poses no obstacle to this to.
