People v. Some Dude

Ex Parte Motion for Order to Require the Fresno County Sheriff's Department to Allow Unmonitored Contact Visits for Defense Team


While admitted to jail to visit my client, I noted that the room contained an intercom. There was no way to know if anyone was listening on the intercom. I felt that to honor my duty of confidentiality under California Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 3-100, and under the California Business & Professions Code, section 6068, I could not allow my client to discuss his case with me in front of a possible open microphone.

The court felt differently.
