Possession of Marijuana Charge Dismissed…

In April of this year, one of my clients was charged with possession of marijuana in Carson County. She was was stopped for speeding on Interstate 40. During the course of the traffic stop, the passenger in the vehicle gave consent to search the vehicle. Approximately 50 pounds of marijuana was found in luggage located in the vehicle. During negotiations with the State, the passenger took responsibility for the marijuana and claimed that my client had no knowledge of the marijuana. Since there was little evidence linking my client to the marijuana, the State dismissed the criminal charges filed against my client.
