Summary

I graduated from the University of Washington in 1994 with a Bachelor's Degree in History and Political Science. I then attended law school at Gonzaga University School of Law in Spokane. I graduated with my Juris Doctorate degree in 1997. I was a prosecutor for 8 years before opening my own office and practicing criminal defense for 11 years. I have handled all criminal matters from misdemeanors to murder. I have now taken my experience and help injured workers with their worker's compensation claims, social security and personal injury matters. I also help people vacate or expunge old convictions and arrests, restore rights to possess firearms and handle traffic infractions. I have tried over 100 criminal cases to juries and judges.

12 Questions Answered

Q. I would like to know if I can have the evidence suppressed or if officers were in violation of 4th amendment.
A: It is an interesting question. But it appears that the officer had a valid arrest warrant. If that is the case, officers have the right to a limited intrusion into the residence to arrest the suspect. And upon a valid arrest, if they find a weapon on the suspect, that would not be a violation of his rights. There would need to be more information regarding who answered the door, if there was any conversation as to consent to enter or not. The person having standing to challenge the entry would be the home owner or resident, not the suspected felon. And as there was no search done of the residence and no illegal contraband found in the residence to charge the owner/tenant, it doesn't appear they would have any successful challenge. Based on the facts of your scenario, it appears the suspected felon is out of luck. He/she definitely needs to work with their lawyer.
Q. Can I place a security camera from my front porch facing a shared (public)driveway to log suspicious activity?
A: As long as you are not audio recording private conversations, it should be fine to video tape public places.
