Skip to comments.Judge undercuts ex-D.A.[CA] Jackie Lacey’s initial decision not to charge Ed Buck in fatal overdose
Posted on 03/27/2021 6:43:19 AM PDT by BenLurkin
A federal judge has ruled that Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies acted properly when they seized drugs and other evidence from the West Hollywood home of Democratic donor Ed Buck after a man was found dead there in 2017.
Buck... asked U.S. District Judge Christina A. Snyder to bar prosecutors from using as evidence syringes, drug paraphernalia and nearly two grams of methamphetamine deputies discovered in what Buck called an illegal search of his apartment.
Snyder denied the request. In a ruling Wednesday, she wrote that Buck effectively invited law enforcement into his home when he called 911 to report the overdose of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore during a “party and play” sexual encounter. The deputies’ presence was lawful and the drug evidence was “in plain view,” she found, so prosecutors are free to use it in their case against Buck.
Lacey also defended her rationale at a gathering of the Stonewall Democratic Club, telling the LGBTQ group that deputies and a coroner’s office investigator improperly searched a red tool chest containing drugs inside Buck’s home.
In a March 2 hearing...Snyder heard testimony on the tool chest from Buck, who was in jail, and Sheriff’s Deputy Grehtel Barraza.
Barraza said she noticed a bulbous pipe and a plastic bag with white crystalline residue in drawers of the tool chest that were open, along with drugs on the kitchen table. Buck testified that he was “ninety-nine and forty-four one-hundredths” percent sure the drawers were closed, because the tool chest could tip over if they were left open.
But prosecutors showed the judge a video from Buck’s computer that appeared to show Moore smoking something with the tool chest just behind him and its drawers open. Snyder said she found the deputy’s testimony more credible than Buck’s.

i must be dreaming. an honest Judge.
what will the evil GOP-DNC-CCPinvasion do now?
Adam Schiff has been asking friends for Hillary’s cell phone number.
Change venues!!! Justice obviously cannot get a fair trial under this demonic, biased city ruled by sodomites.
Most of the tension in this case has been between the Democrat Party’s desire to let this bit-time donor off the hook, and their “gay” consistency’s desire to see him punished for killing male prostitutes.
“Lacey also defended her rationale at a gathering of the Stonewall Democratic Club, telling the LGBTQ group that deputies and a coroner’s office investigator improperly searched a red tool chest containing drugs inside Buck’s home.”
I’m sure Lacey was an honored guest at this sodomite gathering, not a hostile opponent.
There’s no different between the Democrat party and the Gaystapo. One and the same. The gays are only concerned about the negative light this shines on them.
Just Democrats testing their Post Trump legal safe zones.
So, were any compromising photos of schiff among the seized evidence?
There are only two stories like this that have gotten out of this reprobate drugging and killing men. I can’t imagine what the real body count is.
