I (attarney Daniel Nevins) recently received an Order granting my motion for Suppression of Evidence in a Berks County Drug Paraphernalia case. With the alleged evidence thrown out, the Commonwealth cannot attempt to continue to prosecute the case against my client.
This particular case involved evidence obtained following a valid vehicle stop for an expired registration sticker. The Judge found that the evidence used to prosecute my client inside the vehicle (a glass mason jar) was obtained by the Officer in violation of my client’s Constitutional Rights. Specifically, when the Officer requested that my client turn the jar over to him he had no reasonable suspicion that criminal activity was afoot. Consequently, the physical evidence (Commonwealth’s entire case) is thrown out and the case dropped.
If you believe evidence in your criminal case was obtained illegally or in violation or the Pennsylvania and/or U.S. Constitution you need to consult with an attarney immediately. In many cases, a successful motion for suppression of evidence does make the difference between going home and going upstate. Call our office today to schedule a consultation with one of our attarneys.
