We were able to convince the prosecution to drop the case.
Gabe was concerned about having a criminal record.
Gabe R. is a local tattoo artist who got pulled over for illegal tint (his windows were too dark). The cops smelled weed and made him get out of the car so they could search the vehicle. The police then found a marijuana grinder. Then they searched his little Prada pouch and found a Xanax pill. They asked Gabe about it and he said it’s not his. During the stop, the cops get called about a burglary in progress that they need to respond to. The cops take down his information and tell him they’re letting him go BUT he needs to bring a prescription for the Xanax down to the station within one week. That’s the only way they’ll drop the case.
Six months later he’s pulled over for speeding and when the cops run his license they see there’s a warrant out for his arrest. Gabe is arrested on the spot for possession of a controlled substance and taken to jail.
All of the cops in Boca Raton, Florida wear body cameras that record vehicle stops. We requested the footage in discovery from the original day when the cops found the Xanax pill in Gabe’s pouch, only we didn’t receive it. We then took depositions of the officers. During depositions the cops admit they made a mistake and never submitted the video footage (they only have a 60 day window in which to do so).
