Charges Of Drug Possession Dismissed In The Somerset County Superior Court, Unfairly Incarcerated Client Freed

Outcome: We Were Able To Prove That There Was No Probable Cause To Pull Our Client Over In The First Place, Resulting In Suppression Of All Evidence, Dismissal Of All Charges, And Release Of Our Client To Be Reunited With His Family.

Our client was pulled over in Bernardsville for allegedly swerving while he was driving. The police held our client for over an hour to bring out the Canine Unit, and then conducted a warrantless search of his vehicle, resulting in his arrest. Despite the weakness of the case, the COVID-9 pandemic resulted in our client’s detention in the Somerset County Jail because no testimonial hearings were being performed. Our client placed his faith in our services, and we pushed the Court for the first possible hearing. We were successful in obtaining a hearing date, and were able to use the evidence collected at the time of the motor vehicle stop to prove that there was no probable cause to pull our client over in the first place, resulting in suppression of all evidence, dismissal of all charges, and release of our client to be reunited with his family.
