Walker Hearing

0 comments

An evidentiary hearing to determine the voluntariness of the defendant's statement; common allegations are the defendant was coerced, drunk, intimidated, retarded, etc.

A Walker hearing takes place before a trial and allows the judge to determine whether a statement was voluntarily made - and thus can be used as evidence in the trial - or not. The jury can only hear your statement if a Walker hearing determines you made it voluntarily and knowingly.
