B.S. was arrested in October, 2012, for possession of heroin after the Chicago Police observed him loitering in what they deemed a high crime area. The police interviewed and eventually searched him. Upon searching B.S., the police found heroin and arrested B.S. for felony possession.
B.S.’s family retained Robert J. Callahan and Associates before the preliminary hearing. We conducted our own investigation and determined the police did not have probable cause to approach and question B.S. We brought out this fact during our cross examination of the officer at the preliminary hearing and the judge agreed with us. As a result, the case was dismissed.
