No Probable Cause to Order Our Client Out of the Car

Firm Case Number: 2014-05-2028501
Possession of a Controlled Substance
Bridgeview Courthouse Room 109

Chicago Police Officers claimed that they went to the area of 9028 S. Escanaba because they received a call of a person selling drugs. When they arrived they ordered my client out of his car and made him spit a bag out his mouth that contained drugs. At a motion to suppress evidence, Attorney Levinsohn proved to the judge that the officers did not have probable cause or reasonable suspicion to order my client out of his car. The officers had not corroborated any of the information about a person selling drugs on Escanaba. The detention and search was unlawful, the judge did not allow the drugs to be used against my client at trial. The state had no choice but to DISMISS the case.
