How Long Do the Police Have to Wait to Question You if You Ask for an Attorney?

          In the case of Edwards v. Arizona, the United States Supreme Court ruled that when the police question someone who is in custody and that person expresses a desire to deal with the police only through a lawyer, the police have to stop questioning that person unless he or she voluntarily initiates further communication with the police. But how long do the police have to wait before they are allowed to try to question the person again?  An article that I posted on my website, Federal Criminal Lawyer:  Frequently Asked Questions, examines how the Supreme Court answered that question earlier this year in the case of Maryland v. Shatzer.
