Court of Appeals Justice Paul Halvonik

Posted on | March 15, 2010 | 281 Comments

Paul Halvonik was a Justice of the California State Court of Appeals, the second highest level in the state’s judicial system and was known to be a leading contender for the next vacancy on the California State Supreme Court.

On September 17, 1979, Deborah Halvonik called the Oakland police to report a burglary in their fashionable Oakland Hills home.

While there, the officers saw two growing marijuana plants.

A search warrant was obtained by the police and a search of the Halvonik home turned up 323 live marijuana plants, a couple of bags of smokable marijuana, and a one-third ounce of cocaine.

The Halvoniks were charged with possession of cocaine, cultivating marijuana, and possessing marijuana for sale.

However, this was not Paul Halvonik’s first encounter with a pot problem.

Before his appointment by Governor Brown, Halvonik had been a lawyer representing an inmate at San Quentin on July 10, 1974 when he was caught with a home-rolled marijuana cigarette in his possession.  Halvonik denied knowing how it had gotten into his pack of Marlboros.  The Marin County Deputy District Attorney warned Halvonik not to let it happen again, Halvonik promised it wouldn’t happen again.

Just a year and four months after his appointment, Halvonik was charged with the Oakland offenses.
