Jeffrey Weinsier update II

Following up on this post about the reporter arrested for allegedly packing on school grounds, it appears that charges against Mr. Weinsier have been dropped.

Weinsier had been charged with armed trespass on school property, possession of a weapon, violation of carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest without violence. But he was not on school grounds when police approached him and ordered him to leave, Gerson said.

“Since the defendant was not trespassing, anything that was found on the defendant after he was arrested will be suppressed as a matter of law,” Gerson wrote.

Which is exactly what I said should have happened – I am pleased that justice has been served in this regard.  Just like the AG said, since he wasn’t trespassing, anything found on his person would fall under fruit of the poison tree, and is completely inadmissible.  Congratulations, Jeff.

  1. Didn’t see any mention of disciplinary action taken against the falsely arresting cops, who also knew he wasn’t on school property, and also knew he was carrying legally.

    It’s not really a win until this crap is officially discouraged by providing a downside to officers that overstep the bounds.

  2. Well, that’s not a downside for them. Is it? They will be represented by taxpayer paid city/district attorneys, who have a vested interest in maintaining a good rapport with the police department. Should he win, the money will come from us, not them.

    Where is their downside?
