Criminal Practice – Constitutional – Attorneys – Ineffective Assistance of Counsel – Search & Seizure (access required)

State v. Gerald : An assault victim’s brother, Eric Bullard, his wife Christy, and a deputy sheriff entered defendant’s locked, empty home without a warrant, and the deputy waited while the Bullards took pictures and collected “evidence” of the assault. When defense counsel failed to object to the admission of the pictures and evidence collected by the Bullards, counsel provided ineffective assistance. Defendant is entitled to a new trial.
