Central District of California, Federal Court – Drug Case Dismissed
Our client was facing federal criminal charges of purchasing pseudo-ephedrine in mass quantities in order for the transportation and resale. He was facing a 40-year prison sentence if convicted.
The Drug Enforcement Administration obtained consent by our client to enter his home after they told him they were earthquake inspectors. Our law firm challenged the legality of the entry of his home and also the search of his home and seizure of property on grounds that consent was obtained unlawfully.
The United States District Court Judge agreed with our challenge and then suppressed the contraband. This resulted in dismissal of the entire case.
