Charges: Felony Possession Of Methamphetamine With Intent To Sell
Client arrested and charged with Felony Possession of Metham-phetamine with Intent to Sell. Attorney Daniel Kann filed a motion to suppress evidence based on lack of probable cause for the search. Client was initially observed by officers smoking marijuana in a parked car outside of his residence. Officers established that client was on parole. Officers had client tell them where his residence was. Officers reported to client's residence. Client's roommate answered the door. Client's roommate refused to consent to a search of the residence. Officers searched residence regardless and found large quantities of methamphetamine, baggies and a scale in client's bedroom. Attorney Daniel Kann argued that the search was illegal as client was not observed breaking the law in his residence and roommate refused consent to search. Result - Evidence suppressed. Case dismissed.
