Coming tomorrow from the Cal. Supremes:
PEOPLE v. HALL (LAQUINCY)
S227193 (A141278; Contra Costa County Superior Court – 51315225)
Argued in Los Angeles 12-07-16
This case presents the following issues: (1) Are probation conditions prohibiting defendant from: (a) “owning, possessing or having in his custody or control any handgun, rifle, shotgun or any firearm whatsoever or any weapon that can be concealed on his person”; and (b) “using or possessing or having in his custody or control any illegal drugs, narcotics, narcotics paraphernalia without a prescription,” unconstitutionally vague? (2) Is an explicit knowledge requirement constitutionally mandated?
