State Dismissed Drug Case

  • By:Patrick Dunn

A client was the subject of a traffic stop and a subsequent search of his vehicle revealed 60 pounds of marijuana.

The cruiser video showed clearly that the officer handling the drug dog queued the dog to alert to the rear of the vehicle. We filed a motion to get the training and proficiency records on that dog which was granted by the court. A week later, we received an order signed by the judge and filed by the prosecution dismissing the case. Apparently the State watched the video only after we drew their attention to it.
