According to one of Clemente's attorneys, Ronald Kuby, Judge Richard Lowe was expected to rule on the admissibility of the evidence last Friday, but was not ready to give his decision at that time. Some of the evidence -- including 200 vials of crack cocaine, 14 ounces of powder cocaine and an M-11 machine pistol -- are central to the prosectution's nine felony drug and weapons charges against Clemente. The admissibility of the evidence hinges on whether the Harlem apartment Clemente was arrested in was legally searched by police. Clemente's attorneys claim that police went beyond the bounds of a proper warrantless search the night of January 9, but Assistant District Attorney Max Wiley contends the search was perfectly legal. -- Peter SpiegelComments powered by Disqus
