2009 - Items Suppressed After Declared Illegally Seized in Execution of Search Warrant

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

An Orange County Court Judge issued a Decision and Order suppressing credit cards illegally seized during the execution of a search warrant. John Ingrassia and another Firm Attorney filed a motion arguing that the police exceeded the scope of an overly broad warrant. The team successfully argued against the District Attorney getting a second bite at the apple by rearguing the suppression issue and by attempting to illicit testimony regarding the observations and photographs of the credit cards. The District Attorney certified that they could not prosecute the case without the credit cards or the derivative evidence, and they have taken an appeal. The Criminal Department is defending the decision and filing a brief in the Second Department, Appellate Division in support of the suppression.
