Longtime local judge Bascom W. Bentley III recently completed a week-long course on the Fourth Amendment presented by the National Judicial College on the University of Mississippi campus in Oxford, Miss.
Bentley, the judge of the 369th state district court serving Anderson and Cherokee counties, completed “The Fourth Amendment: Comprehensive Search and Seizure Training for Trial Judges” which spanned 4 1/2 days and was held at the campus’ law school.
The Fourth Amendment pertains to governmental searches and seizures.
“We went as thoroughly over the Fourth Amendment as you can,” Bentley said this week. “They were good classes with great speakers. It was in-depth and thorough. I learned a lot.”
