Another good result for another happy client. Felony drug charge based on an illegal search…dismissed.
On a related note: it’s really nice when I present my argument to the prosecutor handling the case and she listens intently, thinks about it, and then says (along these lines) “unless the officers tell me something that’s not already in the police report… I’ll be dismissing this case.” Sure enough, she did her homework, saw that the law has changed recently (Rodriguez US Supreme Court case in April 2015), and did the right thing. Bravo to a good prosecutor! Of course it’s an adversarial system and sometimes we disagree, but when it’s cut and dry, why mess around? Again: Bravo!
