Felony Charges Dismissed

Made a client happy recently: client was charged in Marquette County, Michigan with felony delivery/manufacturing of marijuana and maintaining a drug house. Officers entered the house without consent or a search warrant, claiming a need to search for a domestic violence suspect, even though my client stated that the suspect was not in the house. A large amount of cured marijuana, growing plants and three guns were discovered in the house.  I filed a motion to suppress evidence and a hearing was held. After the hearing, the prosecutor’s office dismissed the charges, noting that “it appears that the evidence seized would not be admissible at trial. Continued prosecution would not be in the best interest of justice.” Victory!nolle-excerpt
