WI Court of Appeals – District I
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Corintheus Jabar Gant
Case No.: 2020AP480-CR; 2020AP481-CR
Officials: Brash, P.J., Dugan and White, JJ.
Focus: Warrantless Search – Suppression of Evidence
Corintheus Jabar Gant appeals his judgments of conviction entered after he pled guilty to four counts of intimidation of a witness and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He also appeals the order of the trial court denying his motion for postconviction relief.
On appeal, Gant argues that the evidence that police officers found at his residence pursuant to a search warrant should be suppressed because the officers’ initial entry prior to obtaining the warrant was not justified. Gant also seeks to withdraw his pleas to the witness intimidation counts on the ground that the trial court accepted the pleas without finding a sufficient factual basis for them. We affirm.
