Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer Michael A. Goldstein represented a client charged with cultivation and possession for sale of marijuana. Acting on an anonymous tip, LAPD narcotics officers set up surveillance of our client and thereafter conducted a traffic stop based on a ruse. The client was detained outside of the post office and interrogated while handcuffed and refused to consent to the search of his residence. After approximately one hour, he consented after being advised that officers would go into his home like “gang busters”. Officers recovered what they listed as more than more than 30 pounds of marijuana, U.S. Currency and 3 firearms. After filing a motion to suppress statements made by our client at the time of arrest, a disposition was reached on the day of trial. The felonies were dismissed and our client entered a plea to one misdemeanor and was placed on summary probation with no jail.
