My question involves criminal law for the state of: CALIFORNIA My brother signed a "plea agreement" as did the judge, prosecutor(DA), and my brothers attorney. In that plea there was a condition which said that 2 items seized were to be returned to me. The items are a "cane sword" and a "military style bullet proof vest". After contacting the Sheriff's Dept. , I was told that neither item will be returned to me. The cane sword is an illegal weapon(pc 12020) and the vest because they dont want to. Seriously, those were the reasons stated. Isn't the "plea agreement" the same as an order once the judge signs it? And if it was totally illegal to possess the cane sword, why would the return of it be incorporated into the plea agreement? The judge and the prosecutor would obviously known this yet they both agreed to returning it and signed the plea. HELP PLEASE. Thank you in advance for any info., help or advice offered.
