JEFFERSON City — A southeast Missouri guy sued regional law enforcement and customers of the Missouri State Freeway Patrol final month, citing a new point out law focusing on federal gun rules to inquire that officers be barred from testifying versus him in a firearms possession scenario.
Cameron Acosta, of Ripley County, cited the Next Amendment Preservation Act, accepted by the Republican-controlled Legislature and signed by GOP Gov. Mike Parson, in his July 15 lawsuit from Ripley County Sheriff Mike Barton, Freeway Patrol Col. Eric Olson and other folks.
It is the initial identified lawsuit from local regulation enforcement subsequent passage of the bill, which opponents argued would subject matter police departments to costly authorized actions and hinder collaborations with federal agents on criminal offense process forces.
Acosta voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit Monday adhering to two motions to dismiss submitted by the Ripley County and Butler County prosecutors, respectively.
Acosta, represented by Cape Girardeau attorney Curtis Poore, of the Limbaugh Regulation Organization, mentioned in his lawsuit that he “is charged in a 3-count indictment.”
The initially two counts accuse Acosta of “possession of a controlled substance with the intent to supply,” the lawsuit claims, although the 3rd demand accuses him of “possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking criminal offense.”
