Dorchester: Drug Possession with Intent to Distribute (DISMISSED)
Summary of Facts: Our client was suspected of possessing firearms, leading to a search warrant being granted for our client’s home. Police stopped our client, took the keys to our client’s home, and entered. Inside they discovered a bag filled with marijuana. Our client was then charged with possession with intent to distribute a Class D Drug (marijuana).
Action: Attorney Christopher Coughlin represented our client. Attorney Coughlin filed a motion to suppress the evidence seized at our client’s home, arguing the invalidity of the search warrant. On the date of trial, months after our client’s arraignment, Attorney Coughlin moved that Court dismiss the charges against our client. The Court agreed with Attorney Coughlin and the case was dismissed.
Result: The charges against our client were dismissed and our client was spared a drug conviction.
