                                                                                     REPORTED FROM COMMITTEE










Senate Bill 114 (Substitute S-2 as reported)

Sponsor:  Senator Peter J. Lucido

Committee:  Judiciary and Public Safety




The bill would amend the Code of Criminal Procedure to do the following:


  --    Prohibit a law enforcement officer from entering or searching a residence without a valid search warrant, except under exigent circumstances or as otherwise provided in the bill, if a resident expressly objected to the entry or the search, regardless of whether another resident consented.

  --    Provide that evidence knowingly obtained in violation of that prohibition would be inadmissible in a criminal action against the person who objected, but could be used to revoke parole or probation or to impeach a defendant's testimony.

  --    Specify that the prohibition would not apply if a resident who consented to an entry or search were the victim of an alleged crime committed by a resident who objected to the entry or search.

  --    Specify that a minor resident's objection could not prevent a warrantless entry or search if the minor's parent or guardian, who also was a resident, consented to the entry or search.

  --    Specify that the bill would apply only to an individual who was a resident at the residence at which entry was sought.
