Four people charged in a dog-kennel child abuse case in North Platte want to suppress evidence from interviews with police, claiming their Miranda Rights were violated.
Ashly Clark, Lacy Beyer and Bryson and Samantha Eyten
are charged with child abuse and false imprisonment. Police found Clark's two boys sleeping in a wired-shut kennel last October.
During a hearing on Monday in Lincoln County District Court,
attorneys argued that officers intended to arrest the defendants after arriving at the scene, and they were essentially under arrest at that time.
However, attorneys say, no Miranda Rights were read and any information obtained from interviews should be suppressed.
Prosecutors say the information should be admissible because the
defendants were interviewed during an ongoing investigation.
