One down, 29 to go - UPDATED

☛ ER One down, 29 to go -
Humboldt County district attorney Paul Gallegos dropped a charge of possession of a controlled substance against former Blue Lake police chief David Gundersen Tuesday.

Gallegos said he dropped the charge because two people had “constructive possession” of the drugs in question.

The drugs in question were multiple prescription bottles found in the master bedroom and bathroom of Gundersen’s residence.

Because Gundersen wasn’t the only person who owned the location where the drugs were found, Gallegos said it would be unfair to charge him and not the co-owner.

“I thought equity warranted a dismissal of that charge,” Gallegos said .

Gundersen still faces 29 charges.
- and he only just now figured that out? It's been one of the obvious problems with this case from the get go. Not only because two people live in the house, but because they both work at the same place, and theoretically have the same access - IF the allegations are that they were drugs that were seized in any kind of police action.

as posted elsewhere, he wouldn't know equity if it bit him. It's amazing he can pronounce the word with a straight face.

What do you think about this Rose? You support these changes?


"Parts of the Endangered Species Act may soon be extinct.

The Bush administration wants federal agencies to decide for themselves whether highways, dams, mines and other construction projects might harm endangered animals and plants.

New regulations, which don't require the approval of Congress, would reduce the mandatory, independent reviews government scientists have been performing for 35 years, according to a draft first obtained by The Associated Press."

Sure. Later. I'm busy right now. Not sure why it matters to you anyway, but - later.
