Columbia County Court Grants Defendant's Motion to Suppress
The Defendant was arrested by the Berwick police department and charged with numerous crimes as a result of an illegal traffic stop, confession and search of Defendant's home, including Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Attorney Michael A. Sklarosky filed a Motion to Suppress, alleging that the traffic stop was illegal and as a result, the subsequent confession and search were "fruits of the poisonous tree." After a hearing on the Motion and submission of briefs, the court agreed and granted the Defendant's Motion, suppressing all of the illegally obtained evidence.
