Lawrenceville, GA asked in Criminal Law for Georgia

Q: My husband was arrested for dumping in a subdivion he had been given permission a couple of weeks ago.

The cop never checked to see if permission was given or the 6 other cars that came to the scene. Do we have the right to get body cam video?

A: Part of the discovery should be to obtain any audio or video that may be connected. Consulting a lawyer may have a little bit easier time getting these things - along with police reports, recommendations, history, etc. If your husband has proof that he was legally allowed to dumb in that area (a private place) then I would give that to his attorney asap.
