In March of 2011, one of my clients was charged with possession of marijuana in Oldham County. He was a passenger in a vehicle which was stopped for speeding. During the course of the traffic stop, the driver of the vehicle gave consent to search the vehicle. Approximately 10 pounds of marijuana was found hidden in boxes wrapped as presents. After more than a year of negotiating with the State, the State dismissed the criminal charges filed against my client.
A factor that was beneficial to my client was that he did not have a criminal history. One factor that made this case challenging for the State was that there was little evidence linking my client to the marijuana.
