This article illustrates the ways in which police officers knowingly bend the rules and deliberately try to circumvent the rights of defendants when they are in jail.  They are not supposed to do this, but they do it all the time. Richard sent in this article as an example of what happened to him at the Winnebago County Jail when he was represented by the public defender but the police still attempted several times to question him without the knowledge of his attorney.  This probably still happens to others in the Winnebago County Jail, but it just isn’t often mentioned because it seems to be accepted as pretty typical.

Officers’ inquiry out of bounds
