Drug possession charges dismissed due to Illegal Search
On January 3, 2018, Madison WI criminal defense attorney Mark Eisenberg was successful in suppressing approximately three pounds of marijuana that were found in the defendant’s home. The State argued that it could enter the home based on a community caretaker exception to the search warrant requirement.
Mark Eisenberg argued that the community caretaker exception was not available in this case. The trial court agreed and suppressed the evidence that was found in the illegal search. The court then dismissed the drug possession charges.
