Storyboard Text

  • On March 15th, 2019, I was walking across the street with my service dog
  • I am blind and hearing impaired, so I need my service dog to function. Being blind, I could not find the leash for my dog before crossing the road
  • Hey! You!
  • The policeman arrested me for jaywalking and walking my dog without a leash. I tried to tell him that I was blind, but he did not listen. I was read my Miranda rights, so I did know my rights and I hired a lawyer
  • So, I appealed the decision on the basis of the 14th Amendment.  Although that right is not in the bill of rights, I am afforded equal protection under the law.  When I was arrested,  I was afforded due process.  The courts got a search warrant for my medical records.  That cleared the Jaywalking Charge on account of my blindness,  but the dog charge still stuck.
  • The Grand Jury decided that the case should be heard in the US Supreme Court. The police said that they had probable cause the search me for a leash, which I didn't have on me.  I was afforded Habeas Corpus when I was in custody.  I was not tried for the same crime twice, or Double Jeopardy.  I also was not facing Capitol Punishment for this small crime.
  • I won the appeal on the basis of the 14th Amendment.  I was blind and hearing impaired, but I was still provided equal protection under the 14th amendment.  That is the story of how I won an appeal to the supreme court.
