Supreme Court turns aside Mexican's appeal of death sentence in dispute involving foreigners' rights
This is just a short suggestion but an important one nonetheless. Raise issues of International treaties at every turn. In a case I had a number of years ago I believe it was the strength of the issue of non consular consulation that caused a favorable plea bargin. Most treaties require that the consulate be notified before post arrest interrogation begins. If the consulate need not be informed before questioning begins, the treaties often require the suspect be given the opportunity to speak to a consulate official before being questioned.
