Possession of Marijuana Charge Dropped


State v. E.S.; Case No. 562006CF002693 (St. Lucie County)


Drug and Narcotics Charges

Arresting Agency

St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office


Charges Dropped

Our client is 18 years old and driving to school. He gets into an accident that was not his fault. He is taken to the hospital and his truck is towed. Upon receiving the vehicle at the tow yard, one of the employees decides to look inside the truck. He allegedly finds marijuana underneath the seat and calls the police. The police take his word for it and arrest our client for possession of marijuana. The defense makes a phone call to the prosecutor handling the case pointing out that no law enforcement officer ever observed my client anywhere near the bag of weed.  The prosecutor elected to drop the charges.
