About the case:
Joshua Risinger appeals his conviction for murder. Risinger challenges the trial court’s decision to admit three police interrogations of Risinger. Risinger contends that his statements and waiver of Miranda rights were involuntary and that police failed to cease the interrogations after he invoked his Miranda rights. Risinger also challenges the trial court’s decision to allow a forensic psychiatrist to testify that Indiana’s legal standard for insanity is whether a defendant can appreciate the legal wrongfulness of his actions. Risinger contends that the legal standard is moral wrongfulness.
