State v. Douglas Smith

Lewis Lee Lockett

Case Conclusion Date:May 18, 2006

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Conviction Reversed

Description:Client charged with Felony Drug Possession and Cultivation (cannibas) charges. After filing a Motion To Suppress Evidence based on an illegal police detention of my client, I asked for a hearing on it. After the Judge denied the Motion, we took the case up on appeal to the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee and convinced the Court to overrule the Judge's denial of the motion. The case was sent back with directions to suppress all the evidence. The state soon thereafter dropped all charges. Client's felony conviction was removed and he never spent one day in jail.
