Client’s Third Degree Drug Charges Dismissed on Illegal Search (2018)

Client’s Third Degree Drug Charges Dismissed on Illegal Search (2018)

Client was charged with Third Degree Drug Possession. Ryan and Elizabeth reviewed the police reports and squad video transcripts and it was clear that the police officer illegally expanded the scope of the traffic stop by asking questions completely unrelated to the stop. Ryan’s cross-examination of the arresting officer showed that the officer’s justification for expanding the scope of the stop was ridiculous and unjustified. The judge dismissed the case because the officer did not possess reasonable articulable suspicion to support the expansion of the stop. All felony drug charges were dismissed.
