Challenging the Traffic Stop in New Jersey Marijuana Cases
Many times your arrest for possession of marijuana is made during a traffic stop in which the officers smells, sees, or mysteriously detects the marijuana in your car. I don’t care how he finds it, the vehicle stop itself has to be legal. For example, if the officer pulls you over because your music was loud, it looked like you were speeding, he didn’t like the color of your car, or he just had a hunch, then most likely you can get your case dismissed. The officer needs to present a valid reason for having conducted this vehicle stoppage, or anything that resulted in his pulling you over is thrown out.
If we review your discovery evidence (which includes police reports, videos, witness statements, etc.) and we believe that the initial traffic stop was illegal and unconstitutional, we can file a motion to suppress the illegally seized evidence. Then, a hearing will be held with the judge, the prosecutor, and the police officer where the cop will testify as to the traffic stop and the alleged violation. If the judge finds that that the stop was illegal, then the evidence that was seized based on that illegal stop must be thrown out of court and suppressed.
