Case #: 2022CF*****0
Our client was stopped for speeding. The Officer approached the driver’s side of our client’s vehicle. Upon speaking with our client the Officer said he noticed an orange pill bottle in the back pocket of the passenger side seat. The Officer pulled our client out of the vehicle and placed him in handcuffs. The Officer then searched the car and found Oxycodone Hydrochloride pills in the bottle. Our client did not have a prescription for the pills. Our attorneys began working on the case and noticed a problem with the search of the vehicle. After citing caselaw regarding the time and scope of a traffic stop as well as caselaw regarding the legality of the search of the vehicle, the State dropped the Felony Possession of Oxycodone charge.
