Columbus, GA asked in Criminal Law for Georgia

Q: Incident report has offense date 4 days after they raided the house. Nobody was arrested at the raid

House was raided on 10/20 . They came back on 10/24 and arrested my brother and his girl for a pistol that was inside a juke box and a little drugs. She went to jail was booked on the drugs and took the pistol charge since she wasent a felon. Now they have arrested him and charged him with the gun and drugs she already to claim for. Now the offense date is the 24th it happend on the 20th. It's not a error they are saying it occurred the 24th. Can he fight based on that?

A: I would need to see the report but for the most part if you think the date is wrong for when they made the raid you need to get the body cameras; which is done throuhg discovery.
