United States v. Kizzee
Citation:877 F.3d 650 (2017)
Pereneal Kizzee was charged with and convicted on three counts involving firearms and drug trafficking. On 2014, Taylor Wilkins, a Huntsville, Texas police officer, stopped Carl Brown for a traffic violation and, after receiving permission to search his person, found 0.54 gram of cocaine in a bag in the liner of his cap. Wilkins arrested Brown and brought him to the police station. There, Detective Lance Schultz questioned Brown, which led to his securing a warrant to search Kizzee’s house. After unsuccessfully challenging the validity of the search warrant, Kizzee stood trial. During Detective Schultz’s testimony for the Government, the prosecutor inquired about Detective Schultz’s questioning of Brown. Defense counsel objected to this line of questioning based on hearsay.
