Stupid Case File for January 14, 2006

Warning Sign: Vehicles Subject to Search ... Yes, This Means We Look For Guns & Drugs

Courtesy of "Decision of the Day"

U.S. v. Prevo, 04-15310 (11th Cir., Jan. 11, 2006)

File this one under stupid criminal tricks. The Eleventh Circuit affirms a drug and gun conviction based on evidence seized from the car of defendant Arlease Prevo when she was visiting a friend in state prison. Despite signs clearly stating that all cars entering prison grounds were subject to search, Prevo showed up for a regular visit with crack, a crack pipe, a gun, and $22,000 in cash in her car. The Court concludes that the facility’s policy of searching automobiles that come onto prison property is constitutional, so the search in this case was reasonable.

What do you suppose they'd be looking for? Surely, not guns and crack. When the sign said, "Subject to search", he was sure it must have meant that "subjects" would be searching the car. He was just bringing a few gifts, after all.

That's hilarious. On a side note though, I was recently stopped on a highway where there were no Warning Signs saying "Vehicles Subject to be Searched". My reward for being an upstanding citizen (no crack, no pipes, no guns) was watching my car get torn apart for an hour and a half. Must've been my fault for "looking suspicious" I suppose.

It is a (sort of) funny story... Getting searched is not funny at all though...
