In January 2019, Pennington County deputies responded to a report of a disturbance inside a Rapid Valley home.

After they entered to determine if anyone needed help, one deputy found drug vials lying on a couch. That find led to drug charges against the renter.

During prosecution, the trial judge suppressed that evidence.

The U.S. Attorney's office appealed the suppression, and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments on Friday, Dec. 18.

Victoria Wicks reports on those legal arguments for SDPB.
