Legal Answers
32 Questions Answered
Q. My boyfriend recently got arrested in georgia for theft by bringing stolen property in another state.
A: If he was arrested for Theft by Receiving Stolen Property, the State will need more evidence than just possession of a stolen gun. Case law in Georgia is quite clear on the fact that people buy and sell guns individually and often; therefore, there must be actual evidence that the person possessing the stolen gun "knew or should have known" that the gun was stolen.
Q. If the grand jury calendar shows special presentment under the case, what does this mean?
A: This essentially means that the charges on the indictment are not a result of an arrest warrant. Where the general procedure is for a law enforcement agency to perform an investigation, execute an arrest warrant and then provide the prosecuting agency with their file. The prosecutor then reviews the reports and decides what charges to indict from the warrants and if there are additional charges. A special presentment occurs where there was a criminal investigation and instead of obtaining an arrest warrant from a magistrate judge, the prosecutor's office presents the case to the Grand Jury and they, not the Magistrate Judge decide if there is probable cause to move forward.
Q. Questioning the legality of a search of a passengers purse
A: Based on what you have stated, there appears to be probable cause to search. While open air K-9 sniffs and alerts can be attacked on many levels such as K-9 training records, past false alerts and improper signaling; the fact that drugs were found inside the vehicle drastically diminishes that argument. As for the search of the purse, during a probable cause search of a vehicle for drugs, officers are permitted to search anywhere in the passenger compartment, including bags, boxes, etc., as long as it is reasonable to believe drugs can be found there. This does not mean that you have no defenses. You need to hire an attorney that can analyze the initial probable cause for the stop, the length of time it took to get the K-9 among other defenses.
