Attorney(s) appearing for the Case
Nancy Sharpe, Asst. Dist. Atty., New Orleans, for relator.
Maurice Hattier, Orleans Indigent Defender Program, New Orleans, for respondent.
Before GULOTTA, GARRISON and AUGUSTINE, JJ.
Court of Appeal of Louisiana, Fourth Circuit.
On May 2, 1982, defendant Terry Gains was arrested by two New Orleans police officers for possession of pentazocine, a controlled dangerous substance, and was formally charged with that offense. At a pretrial hearing, the trial court ruled that there existed no probable cause for Gains' arrest and, therefore, that the evidence — the pentazocine — should be suppressed. We granted certiorari to review that decision.
