Result: CASE DISMISSED. Charge: Felony Delivery of Marijuana Less than 5 Pounds in a Drug Free School Zone. This client was facing 10 years confinement for delivery in a school zone. After Mr. Pelley filed the Motion to Suppress, the felony charges were dismissed. State vs. C.B.

Shhhh!!!

Did you know that phone calls from jail are often recorded and that letters you write from jail are read by the District Attorney’s office? Anyone you communicate with — even other inmates — can be forced to testify against you in court.

In all drug possession and manufacture/delivery cases, we will investigate to determine whether the evidence against you was obtained illegally. Did the police have a reason to stop you? Did they have permission to search your car or a warrant to search your house? Did probable cause to arrest you exist? Did the police violate your Fourth Amendment privacy rights? Did the police have a valid search or arrest warrant? Did they read you your Miranda Rights before interrogating you? The evidence obtained in an illegal search or seizure cannot be used against you if you have a legal team that knows how to protect your privacy rights.

Find out if you were the victim of an illegal search or seizure. It is disturbing how often that happens. The police who arrested you have not been successfully attacking improper investigations for decades. OUR DEFENSE TEAM HAS.
