People v. Galland, G034189

Denial of motions to quash and traverse a search warrant and to suppress evidence seized during the execution of that warrant -- in case where defendant pleaded guilty to drug charges after the court denied the motions -- is reversed as the trial court-s failure to maintain a record adequate for appellate review violated state and federal Constitutional provisions, and state statutory provisions on search warrants and document retention, and thus deprived defendant of due process of law.
