Salem District Court
Client was a known drug user who was seen by Police in a high crime area. Their instincts were that he was about to inject heroin or another drug. They approached Client and saw a syringe in his hand, and nearby a spoon and a bottle cap filled with water. All these items were consistent with elicit drug use.When Police searched his vehicle they found two “twist” which were consistent with 1) Cocaine and 2) Heroin based on the appearance and packaging of the items. Since Client had been charged with Class B earlier in his life, this charge was a subsequent offense---a greater penalty. However, no penalties were imposed since---the Client was found Not Guilty of Both Charges after trial.
RESULT: Both Charges Result in NOT GUILTY after Trial.
