Q. I was pulled over for, "licence plate out". I was pulled out of my car because the 2 cops(with guns) saw a knife on my
A: Oh yes... the old 'license plate light' stop...leading to dog searches and the violation of your 4th Amendment right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure! Any traffic violation is justification for a vehicle stop. From there, however, is some good law in challenging these types of end- around -your- rights police behavior, that may well warrant a Motion to Suppress (1538.5 P.C.). The issuing of a simple fix it ticket cannot be delayed to bring in dogs for a search. Rodriguez v. U.S. 135 S. Ct. 1609 (2015); see also U.S. v. Evans 786 F. 3d 779 (9th Cir. 2015). If the knife wasn't otherwise illegal, it provides no reasonable suspicion of criminal activity, and no threat to law enforcement, once you were removed from the car. There may be some things for a good lawyer to explore. Best of Luck!!
Q. Boyfriend got out last week 10 day flash got busted Monday 28 he has a 530.5c1 and 11377a 496da 3056 is he getting time
A: 10-day flash incarceration is typically a condition of probation, where minor violations can be handled without the filing of a formal petition in court. This does not mean criminal charges can't still be filed for the new charges, which could still result in jail time.
Q. I'm currently going to court for a criminal case in contra costa County for a burglary, what is Marsy law ?
A: Marsy's Law is a victim's Bill of Rights. It amended the California Constitution - Article 1 section 28(b) to give enhanced rights to victims for restitution, notice of court hearings, the right to be heard, access to presentence reports if requested and other considerations set forth in that section.
