Legal Answers
51 Questions Answered
Q. Can a cop open a closed and latched gate (of a third party) that has a no trespassing sign on it with an arrest warrant
A: Yes, if the police relied upon reasonable, articulable facts that the person they had a valid arrest warrant was on the property. It does not matter if the person was actually on the property if the above standard was met. However, the police will be limited to only search the property for where a human being could be. Thus, the police could not search through drawers, cabinets, desks, etc.
Q. Will the below info be on my record?
A: It is possible there will be an administrative record of the stop within the police department records. However, since you were not formally arrested or convicted, the encounter will not likely be public record.
Q. Can phone conversations from a deceased person and the person being sued be used in a civil suit case?
A: It will depend on the facts and circumstances of when the phone conversations took place and the substance of the conversations. The hearsay exceptions, regardless if the declarant (i.e., person being sued or daughter) is available to testify, are codified in O.C.G.A. section 24-8-803. The hearsay exceptions when the declarant is unavailable to testify (i.e., deceased daughter) is codified in O.C.G.A. section 24-8-804.
