CNN Breaking News: "The confession of a man charged with kidnapping, raping and killing 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford isn't admissible in court, but the discovery of her body can be used as evidence, a judge ruled today. John Evander Couey, a 47-year-old convicted sex offender, gave the confession to detectives, but also told them that he wanted to consult a lawyer. He wasn't given the opportunity to do so."

I would go into a "rules have to be followed" or "the 5th amendment is there to protect us", but I suspect 99% of you don't want to hear that right now.
