United States v. Rice, et al. (Mar 6th, 2012)
Thirteen individuals were charged with Conspiracy to Distribute Cocaine and Possessing Firearms. The federal government recovered approximately 22 kilograms of cocaine in excess of $250,000. The federal agents utilized search warrants and wiretaps to help in proving the conspiracy. The defendants filed a motion to suppress all evidence collected through the use of wiretaps alleging the wiretaps did not conform with federal guidelines. The federal district judge agreed and all charges were dismissed against the thirteen defendants. The case was appealed to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, OH. The Court of Appeals affirmed the trial courts’ ruling and all charges were dismissed. See, United States v. Rice, 478 F.3d 704 (6th Cir. 2007)
