MOHAMMAD V. COM.
CRIMINAL: Crimes (concealed deadly weapon; KRS 527 exception)
PUBLISHED: AFFIRMING (WINTERSHEIMER)
DATE RENDERED: 9/21/2006
The question before the Court was whether the phrase "glove compartment" refers to any compartment in a vehicle or to a specific compartment. The sole issue is whether the "glove compartment" exception in KRS 527.020(5), presently codified as KRS 527.020(8), should be interpreted broadly as including all interior, factory-installed compartments within the vehicle.
Affirmed Court of Appeals finding that the exception in KRS 527.020(8) plainly and unambiguously applies only to regular, factory-installed glove compartments, and not to any other compartments inside a vehicle.
