Maine's top court rules against housecleaner


PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- The Maine Supreme Judicial Court said a lower court was right to deny an appeal from a housecleaner who asked the court to suppress a confession she offered about stealing drugs after she failed a polygraph test.

Police suspected Jessica Babb after a Falmouth woman reported jewelry and prescription drugs stolen from her home. Babb was a housecleaner at the home. Court documents said Babb denied taking the items and agreed to take a polygraph test, which indicated deception. Documents said she then confessed to taking the drugs, but not the jewelry.

Babb argued that police violated her constitutional right to counsel. The lower court ruled that Babb's right was not infringed because there were no formal charges against her related to the theft. The high court agreed Tuesday.
