Police Report: Police conducted a traffic stop of a young man and his friend. Smelling an odor of marijuana coming from inside the car, the officer searched the passenger compartment and its contents. Inside a backpack, he located a law enforcement baton. This led to the man’s arrest and charge in Rhode Island District Court for unlawful possession of a weapon. The man’s father, a correctional officer, retained Rhode Island Firearms Criminal Defense Attorney, John L. Calcagni III, to defend him in this matter. After appearing with the man for several pretrial conferences, Attorney Calcagni successfully negotiated for the dismissal of this case against the client.
Criminal Case Result:
POSSESSION OF A WEAPON: DISMISSED
