42 Pounds of marijuana found in trunk........Case Dismissed!


Earlier this month a client of this law firm was arrested for possession of 42 pounds of marijuana that was found in the trunk of his car while traveling down the interstate. Facing a felony conviction, a substantial fine amount and court costs and other fees, he didn’t know what to do. That’s when he gave M. DON HIMMELBERG & ASSOCIATES a call to set up a free consultation. We made a step by step game plan tailored to his case and went on the offensive.

During the preliminary hearing and after cross examination of the Officer who made the traffic stop which found the 42 pounds of marijuana, the judge presiding ruled in our favor claiming the stop was illegal. Case Dismissed. No Felony Record! No Fine! No Court Cost! No Probation!

Drug Sniffing Dogs- Are they constitutional? Are they reliable?

In 2005, the United States Supreme Court held in the case of Illinois v. Caballes that when a trained drug dog sniffs a persons automobile, there is no search. As a result, no constitutional violation occurs. This is the case even if the police have absolutely no reason to suspect you may be carrying illegal contraband whatsoever.
