Client Facing Charges of Drug Possession, Scotch Plains, New Jersey

Outcome:  Dismissal

July 2014: After a yearlong battle, the Law Offices of James A. Abate was able to obtain a dismissal before trial of charges of possession of narcotics against one of our clients.  Upon our investigation of the charges, we determined that the defendant was in his own back yard which was surrounded by a closed fence.  Mr. Abate filed a motion to dismiss based on the warrantless search of the of the defendant’s property.  After briefs were filed and due consideration, the judge dismissed the charges under NJSA 2C: 35-10, Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance.
