CASE DISMISSED: Possession of Cannabis

Posted in Case Results on December 28th, 2016

Facts:  The police received an anonymous call about three males sitting in a car in a parking lot smoking marijuana.  A police officer responded to the location and observed the defendant sitting in a car with marijuana in his lap rolling a “joint.”  The defendant was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Outcome:  Mr. Sobel took the deposition of the arresting officer and was able to file a Motion to Suppress arguing that the initial detention leading to the arrest was illegal.  After reviewing the case law and facts alleged in the motion, the state dismissed the case prior to the motion to suppress.
