State v. J.M.

May, 2020
Charges: Underage Consumption - Misdemeanor

Case DISMISSED. For a young man, with an incredibly bright future, a lot was at stake to avoid a criminal record. But, the client made some smart decisions at the time of the incident, including not submitting to a PBT. Such a PBT is a search and can be declined. He smartly did so, leaving little other evidence to support the charge. And after a careful review of the evidence, including a diligent review of the evidence involving the other kids at the scene, the North Star team developed a strong argument that there simply was insufficient evidence for the case. So, some communications with the prosecutor - who we have a great relationship with (which always helps) - led him to realize the same thing and the State dismissed the case - without even a motion to dismiss pending. A perfect and just result for a good young man.
