Highlight

When reviewing a district court's ruling on a motion to suppress, deference is given to the district court's findings of fact and conflicts in testimony are resolved in favor of affirmance.
The voluntariness of a confession depends upon questions of fact to be resolved by the district court. Because the district court is in a superior position to judge credibility and weight, great deference is given to a district court's determination of voluntariness.
A witness must ordinarily assert the privilege against self-incrimination when confronted with questions that the government should reasonably expect to elicit incriminating evidence, but one exception is when the assertion of the privilege is penalized so as to foreclose a free choice to remain silent and compel incriminating testimony.
