FICTITIOUS INSPECTION STICKER DISMISSALS
Bill Mange's fictitious inspection sticker case results
Note that these case summaries do not guarantee results in any future case. The outcome of any individual criminal case depends on the facts and the law in that case.
My client was charged with having a fictitious inspection sticker on his windshield. The reason he got a ticket for this in the first place was that an officer had parked himself at the corner of 7th and Chicon, where a lot of honest, hard-working people work and live, but unfortunately there are also a fair number of drug dealers, too. So, the officer had himself parked there, looking for basically any reason to stop anybody, because he figured he could get to the search soon enough. Along came my client, whose inspection sticker didn't look quite right. The officer stopped him, smelled marijuana, and they were off to the races. Unfortunately for the officer, the amount of marijuana found was so small that even the narcotics unit didn't want to fool with it. No charges were filed on that. My client just went and got his car inspected and we proved that.
Result: case dismissed.
