The Coroner's Inquest and the Fifth Amendment

The Coroner's Inquest and the Fifth Amendment

Submitted by David Kaplan on Wed, 11/24/2010 - 13:56.

The Coroner’s Inquest Review Panel recommended changes to the inquest process designed to answer the public outcry for fair and balanced representation during inquest proceedings while also addressing concerns that the process not become too ‘adversarial.’ Nonetheless, the Police Protective Association has warned that its officers won’t participate. The ACLU of Nevada explains why the proposal will work and will not violate the Fifth Amendment. For more info, open the PDF below.

Also the link to the discussion on KNPR's State of Nevada is at the link above.

ACLU of Nevada: "DO YOU THINK THE CORONER'S INQUEST NEEDS REFORM? Please contact your commissioners and tell them that we need representation AT THE INQUEST PROCEEDING ITSELF, for the deceased's family. The PPA and the DA are fighting this, and we need your help. The ordinance will be introduced next Tue. [11/16] and then will be voted on 12/7."
