Name: People v. Hunter
Case #: C034939
Opinion Date: 07/11/2002
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 3 DCA
Citation: 100 Cal.App.4th 37

Hunter appealed the denial of a discovery motion regarding the identity of a confidential informant upon whom officers relied in order to obtain a search warrant. Hunter entered a guilty plea, and obtained a certificate of probable cause. However, he had not raised a motion to suppress the evidence obtained from the search warrant prior to entering his guilty plea. The appellate court here found Hunter’s challenge not cognizable on appeal because the denial of the discovery motion did not go to the legality of the proceedings, and he failed to move to suppress the evidence below.
