The Police pulled the Defendant over for a speeding violation. The Defendant gave the Officer consent to search her vehicle. The Officer found prescription pill bottles and a hollowed out pen containing residue. A presumptive field test proved positive for narcotics. The Defendant confessed that she used the pen shell to snort her pills versus swallowing them. The Police arrested the Defendant and charged her with Possession of Paraphernalia.
RESULT: The defense immediately contacted the Client’s doctors and obtained proof of prescriptions for the drugs found in her vehicle and on the paraphernalia. The attorney convinced the Prosecution that the case lacked evidence and the State DROPPED all charges on the eve of trial. The Client is now eligible to have her records expunged.
