Acosta v. Artuz, No. 05-4196

By FindLaw Staff on August 04, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Denial of petition for writ of habeas corpus is affirmed where: 1) petitioner's claim is procedurally barred as he failed to adequately exhaust state remedies before seeking federal habeas relief; and 2) habeas relief is not warranted as petitioner cannot demonstrate that clearly established Supreme Court precedent compelled the state court to conclude that his confession was inadmissible as the product of interrogation rather than admissible as a volunteered statement.
