DUI & Criminal Division

All of these cases were part of the same case and we represented all four defendants. The case involved four individuals in a vehicle who were stopped for having a non functional left brake light. Upon stopping the vehicle the officer detected a smell of marijuana and asked the defendants to step out of the vehicle. The officer then asked where the marijuana was in the vehicle. The defendants talked for a moment and then opened their glove box and handed the marijuana to the officer. All four defendants were charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. After we filed a motion to suppress all the evidence in one of the cases, the State Attorney’s office agreed to dismiss all charges against all four defendants.
