Statement of Attorney General Tom Miller
Attorney General's Office comment re Rodney Heemstra
Supreme Court decision
The Court's decision overturned longstanding precedent and announced a change in the law on felony murder. Naturally,
we are disappointed with the outcome of this case. But as always, we respect the Court's authority and we expect to retry
Regarding the Court's decision as it affects the physician-patient privilege and criminal defendants' access to crime
victims' medical records, we will continue to advocate for and seek to protect victims' rights to the fullest extent allowed
by and consistent with the Court's decision.
