Central District of California, Federal Court - Drug Case Dismissed
Client faced federal charges of purchasing pseudo-ephedrine in mass quantities for transportation and resale and faced a 40 year prison sentence. DEA obtained consent by our client to enter his home after claiming they were earthquake inspectors. We challenged the legality of the home entry and search of his home and seizure of property on grounds that consent was obtained unlawfully. The U.S. District Court Judge agreed with our argument and suppressed the contraband that resulted in dismissal of the entire case.
