Recently, a local restaurant manager in his mid-20s was in his car when he was pulled over for a traffic violation. Subsequent to the stop, the police officer noticed a small amount of marijuana as well as a bowl. He was charged with marijuana possession and possession of paraphernalia , which are minor misdemeanors. Both charges carry a six-month driver’s license suspension if convicted. The man was not charged with any other offenses.
Since the restaurant the man works for performs quarterly background checks on its employees, he was concerned about his job – especially since he had had a clean record prior to the charge. He hired Brad Groene, an experienced Cincinnati marijuana lawyer, to represent him in Fairborn Municipal Court. Brad’s defense of the client focused on the violation of the man’s rights at the time of the arrest and the circumstances around the officer’s searching of the vehicle. Brad was able to get the possession of marijuana charge dismissed altogether and the possession of paraphernalia charge reduced to disorderly conduct. Our client did not have a drug conviction on his record and was able to keep his driver’s license as well as his job.
