The evidence showed that our client was contacted without a legal reason, detained, handcuffed, and searched resulting in the discovery of the illegal contraband in his pocket and a subsequent arrest for possession of controlled substance. Our laws do not allow for the unauthorized detention and search of our citizens. By pointing out these violations to the prosecution, the case was ultimately rejected prior to its presentation to the grand jury.

Possession of Marijuana 0-2oz – DISMISSED

Upon being pulled over by state troopers on the highway for speeding, our client was arrested for possession of marijuana. Attorney Bryan Orihel was able to meet with the state’s attorney and show that the troopers did not have a valid stop for the alleged speeding violation. As a result the state DISMISSED all charges.

Possession of Marijuana 4oz-5lbs – DISMISSED

Our client was pulled over for a faulty taillight. The officer indicated that our client’s taillight was broken and white light was emitting. After researching this issue, Attorney Shawn C. Brown was able to show the prosecutor that our client did not commit a traffic violation for faulty taillight and therefore the stop and detention of our client was illegal and unlawful under the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution. As a result, the prosecution was forced to DISMISS the case.

Possession with Intent to Distribute – DISMISSED

Our client was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Dab/Hashish oil, which is classified as a first degree felony. After careful review of the facts and evidence, Attorney Shawn C. Brown filed a motion to have the drugs tested by a laboratory hired by our firm. Due to strong diligence and determination by our team, Shawn was able to get the case significantly reduced and closed.

Drug Crimes-DISMISSED

Upon a traffic stop, our client was arrested for felony drug possession after the officers said they searched his person with his consent. During the investigation and review of all the evidence, including the body cam of the officer, Attorney Adrian Flores discovered that our client did not consent to the search. After conferring with the prosecutor, the case was DISMISSED as there was no legal justification for the detention and search of the client.
