Snyder rejected the request. In Wednesday’s ruling, she effectively brought law enforcement to his home when Buck called 911 to report an overdose of 26-year-old Gemel Moore during a “party and play” sexual encounter. I wrote that I invited him. The presence of the agent was legal and the evidence of the drug was “in a clear view”, so prosecutors are free to use it in their proceedings against Buck.
