Cathy Kelly reports:

Judge Robert Atack Friday gutted felony gun and drug charges against a Larkin Valley father and son, ruling that deputies erred in looking through the son’s Blackberry during a search of his car.

Atack said the son, 25-year-old Reid Nottoli, had a reasonable expectation of privacy for the device and that a deputy did not have sufficient grounds to invade that privacy.

The ruling regarding a Dec. 6 car stop invalidated later searches of the Larkin Valley compound of Reid Nottoli and his father, Barry Nottoli.
