Suppression Motion Granted in Reading PA Felony Drug Case

Monday, February 11th, 2013

On February 11, 2013 attorney Dan Nevins won a motion to suppress evidence in a Possession with Intent Deliver case in Reading, Pennsylvania. The client was facing a 2 year “school zone” mandatory minimum sentence if he were to be convicted of the allegations. As a result of the Judge’s decision all evidence discovered as a result of the illegal search and seizure will be inadmissible.

This particular case involved officers in an unmarked car approaching a young man who was carrying a backpack and walking down the street in a bad neighborhood. The police continued to follow the individual and eventually jumped out of the car to encounter him. They did not identify themselves as officers. The individual, who saw three men following him, decided to run. One officer chased on foot and the others do so in their unmarked car.inflatable water park

Fortunately the case law dictates that unprovoked flight in a high crime area only leads to reasonable suspicion of criminal activity if the individual knew he was running from Police. ┬áIn this case, there was no indication that the individual had any idea who was chasing him – he only knew he was in a bad area and someone was after him.
