RI Assistant Public Defender Elaine Brunetti had a nice win on 12/7/15 in State v. Jose Rodriguez.
"Judge Carnes granted my Motion to Suppress in and out of court identification this past Monday 12/7 in State v. Jose Rodriguez.
Judge Carnes ruled the procedure used by Woonsocket Police was impermissively suggestive.
He also found that under the totality of the circumstances, the procedure was not otherwise reliable.
Without that, State could not go forward.
He also denied State's Motion to Reconsider on 12/8."
Good job Elaine!
A win for the RI Public Defender.
