Sheppard, White, Kachergus & DeMaggio Wins Case Against St. John's County Sheriff's Office

Sheppard, White, Kachergus & DeMaggio recently defended a man whose Fourth Amendment rights were violated by the St. John's County Sheriff's Office, when they illegally recorded a conversation between Joel Studivant and his attorney, inside the St. John's County Sheriff station. The Florida Times-Union has more: 

Detective Thomas Marmo and Sgt. Brian Canova were investigating Joel Studivant for a potential violation against a domestic violence injunction. Marmo was interviewing Studivant with his attorney, Anne Marie Gennusa.

Studivant and Gennusa did not know they were being recorded, and Studivant began preparing a written statement. Marmo then left the room to talk to Canova. Studivant and his lawyer talked and decided not to give the statement.

Canova and Marmo watched through a hidden camera.

Marmo came back into the interview room and forcibly grabbed the written statement from the lawyer and arrested Studivant. The criminal charges were eventually dismissed after a deferred prosecution agreement.
