Supreme Court Reverses two Drug Convictions

Times Argus - 9:38 am Mon Jun 28th, 2010

In a Newport case, the court said Thursday the police erred in opening up the backpack of an alleged drug buyer without a warrant. The same day, justices ruled in a Lamoille County case that the lower court judge was out of bounds when he issued a search warrant for marijuana the defendant was allegedly growing in his house.
