Possession of Cannabis – Dismissed

My client is a known Latin King gang member and the police were doing a premise check in the area of Washington and Ballard Road in Des Plaines due to an increase in gang activity in the area. As the police approached my client and was conducting an interview, they witnessed my client drop a silver in color object from his left hand. The officer picked up the object, which was a wrapped piece of aluminum foil. Inside the foil was a green leafy substance, which was suspected to be cannabis. After numerous demands for speedy trial, we got the case dismissed.
