Case: United States v. Dement

Summary: Oral argument on motion to suppress evidence. Defendant, charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, challenges the seizure of a loaded .45 automatic from his storage locker. Prosecutors respond that defendant consented to the search, and that in any event the search was reasonable, because his probation officer reported that he had been using drugs and exhibiting aggressive behavior.
