Case against alleged drug trafficker dismissed following illegal stop and prosecutorial nondisclosure of evidence
June 8, 2017, Middlesex County Superior Court case no. 1481CR00952 charging trafficking in cocaine. Pursuant to a motor vehicle stop, police search client's vehicle, finding over 100 grams cocaine in a hidden compartment. Client faces 8 year minimum mandatory if convicted. We file a motion to suppress which argued police illegally stopped and searched our client's car. We file further motions arguing that the government wrongfully concealed evidence favorable to the defense. Following a hearing on those motions, the Court allows our motion to suppress and the case is dismissed.
