Question 1 I can assure you that Vladimir will not disappear while in custody. I am aware that in the past, Russia has assumed suspected criminals guilty until proven innocent, this does not hold true in the United States.

If this defense is successful all of the evidence obtained while executing the warrant will be inadmissible, meaning they cannot use any of the evidence they have against him during the trial. Another defense that will be used is that the police did not have sufficient evidence to obtain a warrant to search Vladimir’s cell phone without his consent. If the insufficient evidence strategy is successful, the prosecution will lose their biggest piece of evidence making it easier to provide reasonable doubt during the trial and possibly forcing them to drop the charges
