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
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.
