Case #: 20XXXM1XX20 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
A Florida Trooper pulled over a vehicle for speeding in which our client was seated in the front passenger seat. The trooper noted a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the passenger compartment as he approached the car. Upon the trooper’s questions, the male driver admitted he had marijuana in the car, and claimed the drugs were in a backpack belonging to our client. The trooper searched and found marijuana inside a “Hello Kitty” backpack which belonged to our client. The trooper arrested both the driver and our client claiming they were in joint possession of the marijuana. The firm’s attorney met with the Assistant State Attorney and convinced the prosecutor to drop all charges against our client.
