Adams v. Superior Court of Orange County by Supreme Court Of California

Appeal from conviction of bribery. Appellant was arrested for a narcotics violation; this occurred while he was in possession of heroin, surrounded by familiar facilities for its use and in the company of two accomplices. He asked one of the arresting officers, Sergeant Harry E. Dorrell, to go into the bathroom and talk to him alone. Search of his person had revealed that defendant had a roll of fifteen $100 bills in one pocket and $62 in another. When the two were alone defendant said: "Ive got $1500. Why dont you just take the 15 bills and let me go." He repeated this two or three times and Dorrell said: "Just a minute." He thereupon brought Sergeant Guindon into the room and defendant repeated the offer in his presence. Both officers declined to accept the money or to release defendant. As he and his two accomplices were being taken to the police car a large Negro woman came out of the house and said to Dorrell: "Joe wants to give you $3000" (or perhaps it was $3,500 according to Dorrell) "if you will let him go." The officer told her "no."
