Cecily Aguilar; and Vanessa Guillen.
Aguilar’s motion was denied on Wednesday at a national court room in Texas.
Officers had no justified reason to pull over a Dodge Caravan in which she was a passenger, Aguilar’s defense claimed in a movement. That tainted what that followed, as they held her in custody and didn’t give her a Miranda warning, the defense said.
In the movement:
Ms. Aguilar was pulled over. Within a couple of minutes, officers had exerted her authority over her and confiscated her cell phone. She was immediately transported to the station house for interrogation. She was taken to the interrogation room at 8:30 pm, and also the interrogation started 10 minutes later. This short temporal duration, while she was always at the officers’ custody, weighs against attenuation.
Obviously, prosecutors gave another interpretation of events, stating officials had a valid reason to stop the vehicle since Aguilar was barred in the region: the Fort Hood Military Reservation.
“Her existence on article at that time was an infraction,” prosecutors said. “Aware of the law enforcement ceased the motor vehicle, and the Defendant was confronted. She was under arrest.”
In their accounts, the interview of Aguilar focused initially on the action of Robinson. It was voluntary, she was not instantly under arrest, and also a reasonable person in her situation would don’t hesitate to leave, the prosecution said. Researchers made it clear when the problem did, indeed, alter. In the prosecution’s movement:
Throughout that question about Aaron Robinson, the Defendant systematically revealed her participation in the use of their body of V.G. later Aaron Robinson had killed her. The Defendant voluntarily assisted the representatives in attempting to achieve Aaron Robinson via her telephone to determine his place and to organize a meeting with him. An agent later informed her that she was no longer free to leave and was under arrest. At that point, she was given her lawful warnings pursuant to Miranda, which she indicated she knew. She continued to voluntarily cooperate with law enforcement, making extra statements and attempting to track down and convince Aaron Robinson to concede.
Robinson, a 20-year-old specialist in the Army, would never concede.
Guillen, then a private in the Army, vanished from Fort Hood in Texas on April 22, 2020. Her family criticized the army, asserting officials didn’t initially take her disappearance or even allegations of confronting sexual harassment seriously. Guillen was heavily encouraged to specialist.
