Unlawful Possession of a Weapon
An Evanston Police officer pulled Ms. A over because she was using her cell phone while driving. The officer then claimed that he smelled cannabis so he searched her car and found a gun in her purse and the cannabis inside a locked safe in the back of the car. At a motion to suppress, I proved that the officer lied about smelling cannabis from a locked safe. He should have given her a ticket for using the phone and let her go instead of searching the car. Motion granted.
