Working alongside colleague Edward A. Ritchitelli, we recently won a significant motion to suppress evidence that the State felt was key in proceeding against our client, who has been charged with Murder in the First Degree, and other associated charges. On Tuesday, January 20, 2015, we argued to the Circuit Court for Cecil County, and our motion was granted. At this point, the proceedings against our client have been stayed, due to the State’s intention to pursue an appeal of this ruling. Our client, a 15-year-old boy, has been released from custody on unsecured bond, and depending upon the results of the appeal process, may never have to step foot into a courtroom again.
