You misunderstood- he opened a different item that he wanted to check out the flexibility of's packaging with the item in question. There was no packaging on the one in pocket. And he was no longer headed towards exit when apprehended but thats a moot point right now. He is going to trial soon, as the only plea offered was no jail time and as he was already denied a court attorney because theres was no chance of jail, that didnt seem to be a deal.
Thank you everyone for your help and guidance but please could someone tell me the steps of actually obtaining discovery???? The code Mr KnowItAll gave me was helpful on the rules of when/who can obtain discovery but i couldnt find information on exactly how you ask PA for it. Please help?(
