Case Number: XX-XXXXXXXXXX
The defendant was pulled over while driving for having illegal tint on his back windows. A teletype check showed that there was an active warrant for the defendant. Once the warrant was confirmed, the defendant was placed under arrest and a search of the vehicle was conducted. Cannabis was recovered from the center consol of the vehicle and the defendant was arrested for possession of cannabis.
Charges: Possession of cannabis.
Outcome: Mr. Sobel filed a sworn motion to dismiss arguing that eventhough the vehicle was driven by the defendant, the defendant was not the registered owner and that there was a passenger in the vehicle as well. Mr. Sobel used these facts and supporting case law to show that there was no evidence linking the defendant to the cannabis. After reading the motion, the state dropped the charges.
