Felony Drug Case Dismissed, Misdemeanor Deferred Disposition Entered to End in Dismissal

Our Client was charged in Portland, Maine in the Cumberland County Superior Court with a Felony Possession of Hydrocodone and Misdemeanor Posession of Cocaine.  Our Client was a student at USM.  He was charged when he consented to a search of his dorm room and drugs were seized.  He was extremely under the influence when he consented to the search.I filed a Motion to Suppress the consent to search, arguing that his consent was invalid and a warrant was needed.  Prior to the hearing on the Motion to Suppress, we were able to resolve the matter.The deal involved an outright dismissal of the felony case.  The misdemeanor was entered with a deferred disposition, which involved the client going to counseling and doing community service for a year.  At the end of the year, the remaining charge will be dismissed.A great deal for our Client!  --Tim Zerillo
