ATTORNEYS AT KASSIUS BENSON LAW, P.A. OBTAIN SUPPRESSION OF EVIDENCE & DISMISSAL IN CASE INVOLVING OVER 500 GRAMS OF MARIJAUNA
April 20, 2017 – Congratulations to Kassius Benson, Senior Counsel who obtained suppression of evidence and dismissal of a charge of 1st Degree Possession of over 500 pounds of marijuana seized in Fergus Falls, Minnesota in the Otter Tail County District Court. Our client “M.D.” was released from jail today. The Court agreed with the attorneys that the State Trooper illegally extended the scope of the traffic stop of a pickup truck occupied by Client and 2 others from a stop for obstructed plates to a drug investigation. Law Clerk Kayla Kienzle provided necessary and excellent legal research in support of our memorandum to dismiss after the contested hearing. Great work by all. This result was the product of a total team effort and consistent with the standards of the Firm.
