Possession of a Controlled Substance w/Intent to Deliver
26th and California Room 305
Our client was driving in the area of Monroe and Kilpatrick when Chicago Police Officers Chatys and Zarbock pulled him over for not wearing his seatbelt. Officer Chatys claimed that out client made furtive movements and had him and the other 5 people in the car get out. Then instead of giving him a ticket for no seatbelt, Officer Peraino arrived on scene and searched our client and claimed to have found 18 packages of heroin. At a hearing, Attorney Levinsohn cited People v. Vernon Smith in order to have the evidence thrown out because of an illegal search by the police. Case dismissed.
