FL5: Error to deny without a hearing a facially sufficient motion for return of property

Defendant’s motion for return of property was facially sufficient for a hearing, and the circuit court erred in denying it without a hearing. Peterson v. State, 2018 Fla. App. LEXIS 8861 (Fla. 5th DCA June 22, 2018).

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not challenging an alleged unlawful entry that produced nothing used at trial. Gonzalez v. State, 2018 Fla. App. LEXIS 8896 (Fla. 1st DCA June 22, 2018).

Defendant has applied under 18 U.S.C. § 3624(c)(1) for recommendation for early placement in community confinement. “In his official capacity as a police officer, whose duty is to ‘protect and serve’ the public, defendant instead violated the trust of the very individuals he swore to protect and serve.” “He has shown no effort at rehabilitation while in prison.” Denied. United States v. Jones, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 106621 (N.D. Ohio June 26, 2018).
