Marijuana Evidence Suppressed after Indiana Court Finds Consent to Search Invalid
Charges of possession of marijuana, dealing in marijuana, and maintaining a common nuisance were dismissed against an Indiana woman after the trial court found her consent to search her home was not freely and voluntarily given. A police officers’ statement that they could obtain a search warrant if they were not allowed inside the woman’s home led her to believe that she had no choice, rendering her consent invalid. If police obtained consent to search your home or car after representing they could get a search warrant, you may have a viable defense. With offices in Lafayette and Fort Wayne, our criminal defense attorneys defend marijuana cases throughout Indiana including in Crawfordsville, Frankfort, Peru, Logansport, Indianapolis, and Muncie.

Indiana law provides an entrapment defense if a controlled buy takes place within 1000 feet of a school or public park at the suggestion of a law enforcement officer. Gibson Law Office criminal defense attorneys have significant experience defending dealing cocaine charges in Indiana, including at jury trial.

Indiana Criminal Trespass Conviction Reversed for Banned Bar Patron on Sidewalk
An Indianapolis bar patron was removed by security for smoking and given a trespass warning.  He then returned and stood on the sidewalk directly in front of the bar. A police officer asked the man to leave several times, but he refused and stated that he was getting information because he was going to sue the bar. He was then arrested for criminal trespass, a Class A misdemeanor. The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed the criminal trespass conviction, because the defendant was on public sidewalk when he was arrested and not the bar’s property. Gibson Law Office criminal attorneys defend criminal trespass charges in Indianapolis, Lafayette, and Fort Wayne.
