Possession of a Controlled Substance
26th and California Room 500
Chicago Police Officer Morlock claimed our client did not have his seat belt on and pulled him over. During the stop, Officer Morlock then reached into the car and grabbed a baby bottle from behind driver’s seat. The bottle was full of purple liquid codeine and our client was arrested. At trial I obtained vehicle records from Indiana proving that our client was just borrowing the car and had not seen the bottle. That was the key to the case. The judge found him NOT GUILTY.
