On Wednesday , 23 year old Brenton Michael Wolf, was charged with unlawful possession of paraphernalia and cultivation of marijuana.
The way the charges came about are very odd though and it will be interesting to see how the attorney addresses the potential legal issues. Apparently, the defendant had ordered food delivery, but the deliverer got sick. For some reason, she asked a cop to deliver the food, and he did. When he delivered the food, the cop noticed a pipe and the smell of marijuana. Brenton consented to a search and the police fond 27 marijuana plants in the apartment.
As a Kansas criminal defense lawyer, I immediately start thinking about the numerous potential suppression issues. At least the defendant wasn't found driving. They would have likely charged him with DUI as well.
