U.S. Supreme Court

Segurola v. United States, 275 U.S. 106 (1927)

Segurola v. United States

No. 195

Argued October 12, 1927

Decided November 21, 1927

275 U.S. 106


1. Under the Organic Act of Porto Rico, an accused person, is entitled to have a copy of the information free of clerk's fees. P. 275 U. S. 109.

2. Refusal to furnish the copy free is harmless when the accused, attended by counsel, waived the reading of the information and pleaded not guilty. P. 275 U. S. 110.

3. Where evidence of a search and seizure of intoxicating liquor, including the liquor itself, clearly proved defendants guilty of illegal transportation, and was introduced without objection to the search and seizure, refusal to require a police officer on cross-examination to give the name of the person from whom he obtained information leading to the search, and refusal to sustain a motion to suppress the liquor as evidence upon the ground that the search and seizure were illegal, were not prejudicial. P. 275 U. S. 111.

4. In a prosecution for transporting intoxicating liquor, the objection that the liquor was obtained by a search and seizure instituted without warrant or probable cause comes too late when raised for the first time after the liquor has been offered in evidence and admitted. P. 275 U. S. 111.
