8 The robbers took the currency from the cash register; the service station attendant, one Stephen Kovacich, was directed to place the coins in his right-hand glove, which was then taken by the robbers. ] Respondent concedes in this Court that "no other facts are available to determine the amount and the quality of the preparation for trial pursued by Mr. Tamburo or the amount of evidentiary material known by and available to him in determining what, if any, evidentiary objections were mandated or what, if any, defenses were available to petitioner." Petitioner was indicted for both robberies. The Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed, 408 F.2d 1186, and we granted certiorari, . the conviction. The Court of Appeals stated: "We do not know what preparation, if any, counsel was able to accomplish prior to the date of the trial as he did not testify in the state habeas corpus proceeding and there was no evidentiary hearing in the district court.

JUSTICE WHITE delivered the opinion of the Court. U.S. 42, 65] Having ourselves studied this record, we are not prepared to differ with the two courts below. The Fourth Amendment proscribes, to be sure, unreasonable "seizures" as well as "searches." ALI, Model Code of Pre-Arraignment Procedure 6.03 (Tent. Terry v. Ohio, supra. 399 U. S. 47-48. See Harrington v. California, 1975. [ The Court concludes that it was reasonable for the police to take the car to the station, where they searched it once to no avail. of circumstances.

(1968), that a warrantless search in a "stop and frisk" situation must "be strictly circumscribed (1964); United States v. Jeffers, . The Court now discards the approach taken in Preston, and creates a special rule for automobile searches that is seriously at odds with generally applied Fourth Amendment principles. Both Kovacich and Havicon identified petitioner as one of the robbers. It is not an answer to petitioner's claim for a reviewing court simply to conclude that he has failed after the fact to show that, with adequate assistance, he would have prevailed at trial. U.S. 42, 62] In Chambers v.Maroney 399 U.S. 42 (1970), the United States Supreme Court applied the Carroll doctrine in a case with a significant factual difference—the search took place after the vehicle was moved to the stationhouse. [ Id. [Footnote 11] In this posture of the case, we are not inclined to disturb the judgment of the Court of Appeals as to what the state record shows with respect to the adequacy of counsel. The attorney who then appeared to represent petitioner was not Mr. to show the need for it.'" U.S. 752, 762 The question here is whether probable cause justifies a warrantless search in the circumstances presented. U.S. 42, 63] The Court concedes that the police could prevent removal of the evidence by temporarily seizing the car for the time necessary to obtain a warrant. 394 As a general rule, it has also required the judgment of a magistrate on the probable-cause issue and the issuance of a warrant before a search is made. The Court accepts the conclusion of the two courts below that the introduction of the bullets found in petitioner's home, if error, was harmless. before trial, and his handling of the issues that arose during the trial. The search was thus delayed and did not take place on the highway (or street) as in Carroll. [399 threatened him with a gun during one of the robberies, Mr. Tamburo asked questions in cross-examination that suggested that he had not had time to settle upon a trial strategy or even to consider whether petitioner would take the stand. ] The four-to-eight-year sentence was to be served concurrently with another sentence, for an unrelated armed robbery offense, imposed earlier but vacated subsequent to imposition of sentence in this case. The Court has long read the Fourth Amendment's proscription of "unreasonable" searches as imposing a general principle that a search without a warrant is not justified by the mere knowledge by the searching officers of facts showing probable cause. U.S. 42, 56] [ Footnote 7 It appears that the offenses here at issue caused revocation of petitioner's parole in connection with a prior conviction. Similarly, we held in Terry v. Ohio, 392 U. S. 1 (1968), that a warrantless search in a "stop and frisk" situation must "be strictly circumscribed. U.S. 60, 75 The materials taken from the car and the bullets seized from petitioner's home were introduced in evidence, and petitioner was convicted of robbery of both service stations.   --- Decided: June 22, 1970. No charge is made that Mr. Tamburo was incompetent or inexperienced; rather, the claim is that his appearance for petitioner was so belated that he could not have furnished effective legal assistance at the second trial. In that event, there is little to choose in terms of practical consequences between an immediate search without a warrant and the car's immobilization until a warrant is obtained. Chambers v. Maroney, 399 U.S. 42 (1970), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court applied the Carroll doctrine in a case with a significant factual difference—the search took place after the vehicle was moved to the stationhouse. ] The Court disregards the fact that Carroll, and each of this Court's decisions upholding a warrantless vehicle search on its authority, involved a search for contraband. U.S. 42, 47] It seems to me that what this record reveals about counsel's handling of the search and seizure claims and about the tenor of his cross-examination of the government witness Havicon, when coupled with his late entry into the case, called for more exploration by the District Court before petitioner's ineffective assistance of counsel claim could be dismissed. Brinegar v. United States, 338 U. S. 160 (1949); Scher v. United States, 305 U. S. 251 (1938); Husty v. United States, 282 U. S. 694 (1931); see United States v. Di Re, 332 U. S. 581, 332 U.

Maroney Case Brief - Rule of Law: "For constitutional purposes [there is] no difference between on the one hand seizing and holding a car before Kovacich told the police that one of the men who robbed him was wearing a green sweater and the other was wearing a trench coat. [399 However, such a person always remains free to consent to an immediate search, thus avoiding any delay. In the first place, as this case shows, the very facts establishing probable cause to search will often blue station wagon observed by witnesses, green shirted suspect mentioned. Chambers v.

Four men, wearing certain clothing, were said to be in the vehicle.   Arguably, because of the preference for a magistrate's judgment, only the immobilization of the car should be permitted until a search warrant is obtained; arguably, only the "lesser" intrusion is permissible until the magistrate authorizes the "greater." [ Evidence seized from the car in that search was held admissible. In the course of a warrant-authorized search of petitioner's home the day after petitioner's arrest, police found and. 376 issue are somewhat confused, involving as they do questions of probable cause, a lost search warrant, and the Pennsylvania procedure for challenging the admissibility of evidence seized.   ", "THE COURT: He said he is going to disprove it by the defendant, that's all right, go ahead.". U.S. 42, 51] Even so, the search that produced the incriminating evidence was made at the police station some time after the arrest, and cannot be justified as a search incident to an arrest: "Once an accused is under arrest and in custody, then a search made at another place, without a warrant, is simply not incident to the arrest.". U.S. 364 Although, as explained above, I do not agree that this destroys the relevance of the issue to the ineffectiveness of counsel claim, I agree that the record supports the lower courts' conclusion that this item of evidence, taken alone, was harmless beyond a reasonable doubt. Opinion for Chambers v. Maroney, 399 U.S. 42, 90 S. Ct. 1975, 26 L. Ed. [399 Chimel v. California, 395 U.S. at 395 U. S. 763; Trupiano v. United States, 334 U. S. 699, 334 U. S. 705, 708 (1948). On the facts before us, the blue station wagon could have been searched on the spot when it was stopped since there was probable cause to search and it was a fleeting target for a search. have been directed to ascertaining whether the circumstances under which Mr. Tamburo was required to undertake petitioner's defense at the second trial were such as to send him into the courtroom with so little knowledge of the case as to render him incapable of affording his client adequate representation. Footnote 11 U.S. 59   U.S. 643 334 The grounds for the exclusion do not clearly appear from the record now before us. They are dependent on the reasonable cause the seizing officer has for belief that the contents of the automobile offend against the law.". ] Mr. Tamburo stated to the trial court: [ The Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed, 408 F.2d 1186, and we granted certiorari, 396 U.S. 900 (1969). ", "THE COURT: You knew about the evidence about to be introduced, you told me about it. [ [ -76 (1942); cf. Chambers v. Maroney Argued: April 27, 1970. Apparently, no one from the Legal Aid Society again conferred with petitioner until a few minutes before the second trial began. . It appears that the offenses here at issue caused revocation of petitioner's parole in connection with a prior conviction. Second, when the prosecution offered in evidence the bullets found in the search of petitioner's home, which had been excluded on defense objection at the first trial, Mr. Tamburo objected to their admission, but in a manner that suggested that he was a stranger to the facts of the case. [Footnote 2] The materials taken from the station wagon were introduced into evidence, Kovacich identifying his glove and Havicon the cards taken in the May 13 robbery. But we are not disposed to fashion a per se rule requiring reversal of every conviction following tardy appointment of counsel or to hold that, whenever a habeas corpus petition alleges a belated appointment, an evidentiary hearing must be held to determine whether the defendant has been denied his constitutional right to counsel. Petitioner did not take a direct appeal from these convictions. One of the other three men was similarly indicted, and the other two were indicted only for the Gulf robbery. The Court expressly did not rely, as suggested today, on the fact that an arrest for vagrancy provided "no cause to believe that evidence of crime was concealed in the auto." It is not an answer to petitioner's claim for a reviewing court simply to conclude that he has failed after the fact to show that, with adequate assistance, he would have prevailed at trial. [Footnote 2/9], Indeed, I believe this conclusion is implicit in the opinion of the unanimous Court in Preston v. United.   After surveying the law from the time of the adoption of the Fourth Amendment onward, the Court held that automobiles and other conveyances may be searched without a warrant in circumstances that would not justify the search without a warrant of a house or an office, provided that there is probable cause to believe that the car contains articles that the officers are entitled to seize. [399 Powell v. Alabama,   searched (D)'s home too. In Cooper v. California, 386 U. S. 58 (1967), [Footnote 7], the Court read Preston as dealing primarily with a search incident to arrest, and cited that case for the proposition that the mobility of a car may make the search of a car without a warrant reasonable "although the result might be the opposite in a search of a home, a store, or other fixed piece of property." 267 The car was driven to a police station, where a search disclosed two revolvers, one loaded with dumdum bullets, and cards bearing the name of an attendant at another service station who had been robbed at gunpoint a week earlier. 305 I believe it clear that a warrantless search involves the greater sacrifice of Fourth Amendment values. The probable cause factor still obtained at the station house, and so did the mobility of the car, unless the Fourth Amendment permits a warrantless seizure of the car and the denial of its use to anyone until a warrant is secured. at 376 U. S. 367 (emphasis added). His first trial ended in a mistrial but he was convicted of both robberies at the second trial.   Such an exploration should. . U.S. 581, 584 In the first place, he made no objection to the admission in evidence of the objects found during the search of the car at the station house after the arrest of its occupants, although that search was of questionable validity under Fourth Amendment standards, see infra. The final claim is that petitioner was not afforded the effective assistance of counsel. Even where no arrests are made, persons who wish to avoid a search - either to protect their privacy or to conceal incriminating evidence - will almost certainly prefer a brief loss of the use of the vehicle in exchange for the opportunity to have a magistrate pass upon the justification for the search. U.S. 42, 47] I don't feel there is any relevancy or connection between the fact there were .38 calibre bullets at his home and the fact that a .38 calibre gun was found, not on the person of Chambers, but in the group.".

Where officers have probable cause to search a vehicle on a public way, a further limited exception to the warrant requirement is reasonable because "the vehicle can be quickly moved out of the locality or jurisdiction in which the warrant must be sought." 395 Both the District Court and the Court of Appeals, however, after careful examination of the record, found that, if there was error in admitting the ammunition, the error was harmless beyond a reasonable doubt.

Based on a careful examination of the state court record, the Court of Appeals' judgment denying a hearing a to the adequacy of representation by counsel, is not disturbed. Hence an immediate search is constitutionally permissible. 282 In the case before us, no claim is made that state law authorized that the station wagon be held as evidence or as an instrumentality of the crime; nor was the station wagon an abandoned or stolen vehicle. 389 82.

The Court of Appeals dealt with the matter in an extensive opinion. The principal question in this case concerns the admissibility of evidence seized from an automobile, in which petitioner was riding at the time of his arrest, after the automobile was taken to a police station and was there thoroughly searched without a warrant. At all times the car and its contents were secure against removal or destruction. For example, the Court has recognized that an arrest creates an emergency situation justifying a warrantless search of the arrestee's person and of "the area from within which he might gain possession of a weapon or destructible evidence"; however, because the exigency giving rise to this exception extends only that far, the search may go no further. 373 a. impoundment before search.

Where this is true, as in Carroll and the case before us now, if an effective search is to be made at any time, either the search must be made immediately without a warrant or the car itself must be seized and held without a warrant for whatever period is necessary to obtain a warrant for the search. 2. 408 F.2d 1186, 1196. Pp. There is no claim that petitioner was not then adequately represented by fully prepared counsel. But which is the "greater" and which the "lesser" intrusion is itself a debatable question and the answer may depend on a variety   (dissenting opinion); Kaufman v. United States, Petitioner, convicted of robbery, sought review of a ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, which affirmed the denial of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. This Court recognized long ago that the duty to provide counsel "is not discharged by an assignment at such a time or under such circumstances as to preclude the giving of effective aid in the preparation and trial of the case." The search was thus delayed and did not take place on the highway (or street) as in Carroll. In that event there is little to choose in terms of practical consequences between an immediate search without a warrant and the car's immobilization until a warrant is obtained. Guns found, and evidence of another robbery. The principal question in this case concerns the admissibility of evidence seized from an automobile, in which petitioner was riding at the time of his arrest, after the automobile was taken to a police station and was there thoroughly searched without a warrant. U.S. 900 White v. Maryland, 373 U. S. 59 (1963); Reynolds v. Cochran, 365 U. S. 525, 365 U. S. 530-533 (1961). As the Court acknowledges, petitioner met Mr. Tamburo, his trial counsel, for the first time en route to the courtroom on the morning of trial. U.S. 48, 51 Neither of petitioner's remaining contentions warrants reversal of the judgment of the Court of Appeals. Facts: Petitioner and the car he was driving in matched the description of a person who robbed a Gulf service station and a who previously robbed a Boron gas station a week before. The Court of Appeals dealt with the claim that the attorney's lack of preparation resulted in the failure to exclude the guns and ammunition by finding harmless error in the admission of the bullets and ruling that the materials seized from the car were admissible in evidence, and concluded that the claim of prejudice from substitution of counsel was without substantial basis. Petitioner was one of four men arrested after the auto in which they were riding was stopped by police shortly after an armed robbery of a service station. (1949); Scher v. United States, U.S. 250 There are, however, alternative grounds arguably justifying the search of the car in this case. Since the occupants themselves are to be taken into custody, they will suffer minimal further inconvenience from the temporary immobilization of their vehicle. (1969); Katz v.
