Nashville Criminal Defense Attorney Thomas T. Overton’s client was charged with 4 felonies and 1 misdemeanor as the result of an illegal search of his client’s home. The charges were as follows:
- Felony manufacture of a controlled substance
- Felony possession of a controlled substance
- Felony possession of a firearm
- Felony drug paraphernalia
- Theft of property
The illegal search happened as a result of the police receiving an alarm call and proceeding to the wrong address. When his client came to the door the client refused entrance by the police officer who smelled marijuana. The police called for back up and placed his client under arrest. Inside the house the police found 7 marijuana plants ,1.5 pounds of processed marijuana, digital scales and a grinder as well as rolling papers, 4 shotguns, 2 rifles and a stolen Ruger 9mm handgun.
The judge dismissed all charges against Attorney Thomas Overton’s client at a preliminary hearing due to the illegal search of my clients home without a search warrant saving this client from a possible 8-25 sentence.
