Bout thuty miles.Twont my apparatus.I'd never build one in my own building and leave the door unlocked.Truth be known,they prolally didn't leave it unlocked either.
Really a shame bout the still, ol boys jus makin a livin.All the worries bout unemployment and dang iffn they don't break up one of the few succesfull businesses left round heah.
Life jus gets more confusin ever day.
FYI.This is the Monroe Va.from whence Steve Broady launched 'Old 97'on the way to Spencer.

Whoa... that deputy discovered that equipment while snooping around that shop without a warrant? Opened a closed door at the back or the place... Don't see a conviction on this one if'n he's got a smarmy lawyer...

Don't bet on it. The deputy was there to legally serve a subpoena for FTA, Which is a civil type of warrant. Upon legally entering the unlocked building in which she had reason to believe the wanted person may by hiding, entering the and observing the illegal still in plain view, the exigent circumstances rule to the requirement for a search warrant is invoked under the constitutional amendments.

These people will walk even with a dumb lawyer.
And they sent a woman sherriff to take the fall for it.
My bet is that the sherriff had complaints about the still (which they admit in the story) and had to do something (not that he wanted to). So they sent the lady to go have a look-see after they tipped off the owners not to be home and to leave the door open.
Complainant about the still is happy...sherriff looks good for re-election, and the owners walk on 'technicalities'...

Can you say Good-Old-Boy Network?
This is the way lots of stuff used to get solved.
Kinda heartening to see that it still exists somewhere in this country...

The opinions above are my own and not necessarily those of the owners of this fine broadcast station...

Like the way you look at things...    Posted 03-07-2002 at 13:51:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
