  4. Brewer V. Williams
    a defendant was suspected of killing a 10 year old girl. while be transported,  his attorney advised him not to make any statements, and the police promised they would not question the defendant during the trip. during the trip, one officer suggested that the girl deserved a "christian burial". shortly after the defendant admitted to killing the girl and directed the police to her body.

  5. United States V. Wade
    a defendant was placed in a police lineup, without his attorney present, after he was indited for a crime.
