Hello again Francia,
My name isXXXXX'm a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.
Sure sorry for the circumstances, truly. My heart goes out to you.
Based on your description, the second prosecution is highly suspect, as follows. There are legal doctrines called the "Exclusionary Rule
" and the "Fruit of the Poisonous Tree", among others, which come into application in such cases. It all stems from your protections afforded pursuant to the Fourth, Fifth and Thirteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, to name a few. Finally, we have the implications of a couple of famous landmark cases which led to what we commonly speak of today as being read one's Miranda
That's the history, but here's the botXXXXX XXXXXne. Failing to advise you of your Constitutional rights to remain silent, avoid self-incrimination, receive legal counsel, etc. was a fatal error in the first investigation. In other words, anything stemming therefrom should have been excluded from consideration. A criminal defense attorney back at that time would have had outstanding ammunition to work with given the failure to advise you of your rights.
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.
I truly hope all works out for you.
