Indian River, 2021 Possession of Controlled Substance

Facts: Our client’s mother was asked to work and double shift and did not have her medication. She asked her daughter to bring her medication to her, which she did. On the way there our client was stopped by law enforcement for drifting out of her lane. She cooperated by allowing the officer to search the vehicle where they located her mother’s medication. Since she did not have the prescription with her our client was arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance.

Results: After speaking the family and discussing our strategy to provide a copy of the prescription to the state attorney the case was dismissed. The dismissal occurred before formal charges were ever filed and our client never had to appear in court.
