Drug trafficking charges dismissed following state police stop of dubious legality

November 2018


November 20, 2018, Essex County Superior Court case no. ESCR2018-00221 charging trafficking in opium over 18 grams, carrying a 3.5-year minimum mandatory penalty. After identifying arresting officer's pattern of illegal stops premised on alleged "window tint" violations, we file a motion to suppress. One day before the evidentiary hearing, the prosecutor concedes that the stop was unlawful, forcing her to dismiss the indictment in its entirety on 11/20/18.
