Conviction for Resisting an Officer Overturned

In Criminal, Traffic by GWAO

The North Carolina Court of Appeals overturned a conviction for Resisting a Police Officer, of RDO, in State v. Carter.  The Court found that there was not enough evidence to uphold the conviction, after the defendant refused to allow the officer to search him pursuant to a search warrant.  The warrant in question , in this case, was not produced, show to the defendant nor read to the defendant;  therefore the officer was not acting lawfully.

Unlawful arrests for resisting a police officer and invalid search warrants happen more than necessary.  if you find yourself in such a situation, contact the trial attorneys at Garrett, Walker and Aycoth at 336-379-0539 today!  Our experienced attorneys can help you win your case or suppress evidence or search warrants against you.
