Bain v. State

Rand Jason Csehy

Case Conclusion Date:November 19, 2002

Practice Area:Appeals

Outcome:Conviction affirmed

Description:After having his motion to suppress denied and convicted at a stipulated bench trial, Defendant, appealed denial of motion to suppress. Defendant, a former Army scout, upon returning from Desert Storm, created a narcotics distribution ring that relied upon threats and intimidation of potential witnesses. In the end, law enforcement investigation and assistance of an informant led to his apprehension. The Court of Appeals found the State conducted the investigation properly and affirmed the conviction (and incidentally, seizure of over $250,000 in assets.)
