Attorneys for accused murderer Robert Durst and federal lawyers both turned in arguments to a judge Wednesday morning. Durst’s attorney filed a motion to suppress evidence.
Last Friday, the judge continued a hearing on the motion, deciding it would be reset, if she found it appropriate, after reading both memorandums, submitted Wednesday.
Durst faces federal weapons and drugs charges. His defense team argued that FBI agents did not have a warrant or probable cause to search him, when they raided his CBD hotel room in April and arrested him after they found marijuana and a gun in his room.
They claim the evidence was gathered illegally and should not be used in the case.
In April, the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office said it would wait for this federal case to end before deciding to prosecute Durst on state weapon charges.
Durst also faces a murder charge in California.
