Commonwealth vs. R.M. – September 2018
R.M. was charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver Methamphetamines when a search of his house located a large quantity of controlled substances in his residence. At the Preliminary Hearing, R.M. explained to Cory Miller that the drugs belonged to his daughter, who was away from the residence during the search of the home. After reviewing the evidence provided by the Commonwealth, R.M. was able to provide additional evidence to prove the possession of the controlled substances. Following a plea to the charges by his daughter, the Felony charges against R.M. were dismissed by the Commonwealth.
Cory Miller was able to demonstrate that the Good Samaritan exception applied and as K.B. remained at the scene and cooperated with her life saving efforts before and after the arrival of EMS, K.B could not be charged with crimes of possession. Charges were withdrawn by the District Attorney’s office at the Preliminary Hearing.
