Hi guys. I'm having a couple ofproblems that I am hoping some of you have a solution to.
edit: I'm not a DA or attorney butthe elements of "possession"are usually "knowledge" and "control" of a prohibited item. Don't give her the combo and don't tell her what is in the safe. It would bea fair argument in her defense that she doesn't know it's in the apt and doesn't have "control" of it.
Also, is she on searchable probation? Would a "probation/parole" agent show up for a search of her apartment? These are other considerations. However, if she doesn't have the combo, and it's not hers, even if she gave consent(no consent needed in my state for parole searches)to search it and you weren't there,how would theprobation/parole agent open it. I don't even think you have to worry about searches in the case of a DUI/resisting conviction.
If you used the gun in self defense at her place say the standard, "I fired in self defense/fear for my life, I would like to talk to my attorney please, thank you" and then shut up. Everything else will sort it self out.And tell her not to give a statement either.
