State of Wyoming v. B.F.--2018

Jurisdiction: Campbell County District Court

Charges: Felony Possession of Controlled Substance; Interference with an Officer and Defrauding a Drug Test

Defense: Defense Counsel filed a Motion to Suppress alleging that the officers conducted a warrant-less search by entering the yard of the Defendant's house and looking in the window, all based on an anonymous tip. Mr. Carter argued that the anonymous tip did not satisfy Fourth Amendment requirements and that entering the Defendant's yard and looking through the window without a warrant constituted an illegal search.

Disposition: Defendant's Motion to Suppress Granted. All charges dismissed.

State of Wyoming v. B.L.--2010

Jurisdiction: Campbell County District Court

Charges: Conspiracy to Take Controlled Substance into a Detention Center

Defense: Mr. Carter argued that while Defendant may have moved a controlled substance within the jail, the State presented no evidence of an agreement to break the law by Defendant, which is a necessary element of conspiracy.

Disposition: Acquitted at Jury Trial.

State of Wyoming v. C.M.--2010

Jurisdiction: Johnson County District Court

Charges: Manufacture, Deliver, or Possess With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, a Controlled Substance (methamphetamine)

Defense: Mr. Carter argued that the State failed to prove that the substance that Defendant had allegedly delivered was in fact methamphetamine. Mr. Carter called into question the investigation and lack of physical evidence, and procured expert testimony as to the nature and effect and ability to ascertain the presence of methamphetamine. During closing argument, Mr. Carter used packages of table salt and sugar to demonstrate that the mere appearance of a controlled substance did not prove the existence of a controlled substance.

Disposition: Acquitted at Jury Trial.

 

State of Wyoming v. P.H.--2008

Jurisdiction: Campbell County District Court

Charges: Possession with Intent to Distribute (Methamphetamine)

Defense: Mr. Carter filed a Motion to Suppress on behalf of Defendant alleging that the search of the Defendant’s vehicle exceeded the scope of the initial traffic stop; that being for having an obscured license plate. Mr. Carter argued that the law enforcement officer improperly detained Defendant and searched her vehicle after determining that the license plate was valid.

Disposition: Dismissed. Motion to Suppress granted.

State of Wyoming v. R.K.--2007

Jurisdiction: Campbell County District Court

Charges: Felony Possession of Marijuana

Defense: Mr. Carter filed a Motion to Suppress, arguing that after law enforcement had entered Defendant’s home on a domestic call it was improper for him to seize evidence outside of the scope for being in the home and expanding his investigation.

Disposition: Dismissed. Motion to Suppress granted.

State of Wyoming v. J.D.--2006

Jurisdiction: Campbell County Circuit Court

Charges: Delivery of Drug Paraphernalia and 2 Counts of Possession with Intent to Deliver Drug Paraphernalia

Defense: Mr. Carter argued and presented evidence that the materials being sold by Defendant were not solely designed or marketed as drug paraphernalia. During closing argument, Mr. Carter briefly put on a ski mask illustrating to the jury that a ski mask would have a purpose to conceal the identity of a bank robber which was unlawful, but could be used for a lawful purpose, specifically as protection from cold weather.

Disposition: Acquitted at Jury Trial.
