Job Interview for FBI Position Lands Applicant in Hot Water
To Dominick Pelletier, he was just being honest when he admitted to possessing child pornography during a job interview for the FBI, Reuters reports.
Because he wasn’t read his rights during the interview, Pelletier claims agents had no basis on which to search his property, where they found more than 600 images of children.
A federal appeals court didn’t buy the argument last week, saying Pelletier, now 35, was not in custody and therefore authorities had no obligation to read him his miranda rights, Reuters reported.
“Indeed, it seems that Pelletier left the interview room believing he was still in the running for an FBI job,” Judge Michael Kanne wrote for a unanimous three-judge panel.
