DUI and Marijuana Possession Suppressed at Hearing
My client was charged with DUI 2nd offense (controlled substance), Marijuana possession and related offenses. My client refused a chemical test and was facing a mandatory minimum of 90 days in jail. I went to the scene of the allege traffic violation and took pictures which showed the vantage point of the Pennsylvania State Trooper would not allow for probable cause to exist in order to initiate the vehicle stop. A motion to suppress was filed, arguing the vehicle stop was not supported by probable cause and the subsequent search of the vehicle was unlawful. The Judge agreed and suppressed the vehicle stop and unlawful search of the vehicle. My client was free to go!
