Chardon shooting suspect loses motion to suppress
Recorded comments made by family CAN be used in court
by WKSU's KABIR BHATIA


Reporter

In The Region:
A Geauga County judge has ruled that recorded comments made by the family of the suspected Chardon High School shooter CAN be used in court.

On the day of the shootings, T.J. Lane’s parents and grandparents were called to the Chardon police station to pick-up his teenage sister. They were escorted to an interrogation room to keep them apart from residents angry over the shootings. Lane’s defense team had argued the family had no idea they were being recorded.

But Common Pleas Judge David Fuhry ruled that the family should have known they were in an interrogation room and not a private area.

J. Dean Carro is a law professor at the University of Akron, and says anyone can make a claim that evidence has been illegally obtained.

“That argument is always premised upon the idea that it is the defendant’s rights that have been violated. As I understand it, the statements or conversations here were among family members not including the defendant. And if that’s the case, he doesn’t have a federal Constitutional right to preclude other people’s statements.”

The 18-year-old Lane is accused of killing three students and injuring three others at Chardon High School on Feb. 27. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and faces life in prison if found guilty. A trial is scheduled for next month.
