With both Attorney Obear and Attorney Kaehne being active legal committee members for NORML, J.D. reached out to our firm for representation on charges of Felony Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Felony Bail Jumping case in Iowa County, Wisconsin. Back in 2013, J.D. and his bandmate played a show in Milwaukee, and were driving back to their home State of Nebraska when pulled over for a traffic violation. The Deputy noted the odor of marijuana, and J.D. immediately handed over a baggie containing marijuana residue, and a marijuana pipe. He bailed out that same night, but was later issued a Felony Bail Jumping charge for missing a Court date. When our firm took the cases over, J.D. was facing a potential penalty of 10 years in prison.

Immediately, Attorney Kaehne took an aggressive approach to the case, demanding a Jury Trial. Attorney Kaehne also filed a Daubert motion to exclude the field testing of the substance, as field tests are inherently unreliable and the prosecutor did not send the substance to the State Crime Laboratory for field testing. A motion was also filed challenging the officer's questioning during the traffic stop. The prosecutor quickly knew he was in for a battle.

This week, Attorney Kaehne walked J.D. out of the courtroom with no Felony conviction, and convinced the judge to immediately expunge the sole count of Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana from J.D.'s record. J.D. tearfully left the courtroom, and was overcome with joy when Attorney Kaehne informed him he would even get a portion of his bond money returned to him. No probation, no jail time, and no criminal record.

Another great victory for our client, and also for the battle against our marijuana laws.
