A Ewing Law Client was charged with various gun charges after police approached him in a parking lot finding a gun in his vehicle. The issue presented to the court was that the police had seized our client, placing him in the back of a locked police car, before having probable cause to do so. Without probable cause, the police had no reason to search the vehicle–and the statement he gave while illegally detained should not have been used against him. Attorney Ewing filed a Motion to Suppress the evidence of the gun, and suppress his illegally obtained statement. Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Joseph J. Farah agreed, suppression was granted–and the case was dismissed.

Attorney Ewing discovered that the illegal u-turn was, in fact, not illegal in Frankenmuth and filed a Motion to Suppress Evidence gathered from the improper traffic stop. District Court Judge A. T. Frank agreed, suppressed the evidence–and the charges were dismissed.
