TILDEN LAW was recently successful in defending a client charged with a drug offense which resulted in all criminal charges being dropped. According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department arrest report, our client was initially stopped for throwing a lighted cigarette out of his window while driving his vehicle on Colonial Drive in Orlando, Florida. After being advised the reason for the stop, the Deputy requested permission to search our client’s vehicle which he refused.
A K-9 unit was called to the scene of the stop to conduct a canine search from the vehicle’s exterior. According to the report, the K-9 units sweep search of the vehicle resulted in a “hit” or positive indication of drugs. A search of the interior of the vehicle revealed a bag of Marijuana and two marijuana smoking pipes in the center console.
Immediately after being retained by our client, attorney N. Fleetwood Tilden, filed pleadings entering a plea of not guilty as to all charges and requested copies of all drug tests conducted. Mr. Tilden also petitioned the State Attorney’s office to dismiss all charges against his client. As a result, the Orange County State Attorney’s office agreed with our request, dismissing all charges against our client.
