Escobedo’s Lawyer Appeals


Barry Kroll, a Chicago lawyer, took an interest in Dany Escobedo’s case. Kroll felt that his client’s right under the Construction had been abrogated. Since the alleged accomplice, Escobedo, had been denied access to an attorney, Kroll asked the courts to invalidate the conviction. He proposed that lawyers be entitled to sit when the police question a suspect but the Illinois courts rejected that on the grounds that it would effectively preclude all questioning by legal authorities. If such a law were upheld, the police felt that it would play havoc with all criminal investigations.

  • abrogated -dihapuskan
  • alleged – diduga
  • accomplice – kaki tangan
  • invalidate – membatalkan
  • conviction – hukuman
  • preclude – menghalangi, menghindari
  • upheld – ditegakkan, dijunjung tinggi
  • havoc – widespread destruction
