HI: Three weeks detention after finding of PC without another court proceeding wasn’t unreasonable

It was not a Fourth Amendment violation to hold defendant for a grand jury indictment when probable cause was found “after a preliminary hearing but the case is dismissed without prejudice due to a defect in the institution of the prosecution, [and] Rule 12(g) permits a court to hold a defendant in custody or continue bail for a specified time that is reasonable under the circumstances.” It was three weeks. Deangelo v. Souza, 2022 Haw. LEXIS 236 (Nov. 17, 2022).

Habeas petitioner seeks to overcome procedural default from his false arrest all the way back in the beginning of the case he was convicted in. That’s specious because the arrest sure wasn’t false. Carter v. Butler, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210451 (S.D. Ala. Oct. 21, 2022).*

Defendant learned five days before his state trial from the unsealed search warrant affidavit that someone else was also at the scene of the murder. He can’t show prejudice from the late disclosure because he knew before trial, per the state appellate decision in his case. Johnson v. Kiser, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210500 (W.D. Va. Nov. 21, 2022).*
