June 1993 - Did I Really Hear That?

From Leon Breeden of San Marcos, this excerpt from a hearing on a motion to dissolve a writ of sequestration on a registered quarter horse and other property:

Q. Had Mr. Becker come to your property and asked to ... look at this property?

A. He came with the sheriff's department ... and they told me that I did not have to allow him if I did not want to ... And at that time he was advised by a law officer that it was not a criminal action, it was a civil one.

Mr Breeden: I object to the hearsay and the non-responsiveness of the answer.

The Court: Sustained.

A. [By the witness]: It was not hearsay. You could hear every word that was said.
