The dismissal, filed Friday, said that the defense mighl lave kept evidence out of a trial if it had attacked a search war- rant which the judge said was obtained by a false and inislead- ng affidavit filed by police. However, he went on, aftei Zacek .pled guilty, the right to make such a direct attack is waived. It was on the basis ol lhat theory that County Ally William Faches said earlier that he believed there was only a five percent chance that Zacek might get a new trial. Zacek's plea for a new chance at a trial was based on the county attorney's statement in a report on an investigation of the police department, lhat an ille gal search had been made at Zacck's residence. The .13-year-old Cedar Rapids man is serving n 75-year term in tbe penitentiary after being found guilty of second-degree murder. He had pled guilty to an open charge of murder in the death of 17-year-old Jean Halverson of Cedar 'Rapids. A report of a grand jury that indicted six men in connection wilh an alleged conspiracy to ruin the reputations of other police officers found lhat the Zacck search was "at least under color of right, and proba- bly legal in view of the fact that Zacek was aMhc time a parole violator and had waived his rights permitting a search of his premises. "Also, entry was probably made under exigent circum- stances, permitting warrantless search under the law of search and seizure." However. Judge Carter said Friday lhat because of a 1970 Iowa supreme court decision the state could not contend the search was legal as a result of Zacek's parole status. The judge referred to it as an illegal entry. He said that in fairness officers il should be noted that the events look place in 1969, before the cited decision, which was adopted in a 5-4 vole. An appeal of the Friday deci- sion is expecled In be made to the Iowa supreme courl.
