Won Appeal


Ten felony charges of possessing child pornography were filed against a 35-year-old Pine Island Man after sexually explicit images were discovered on his phone. The ages of the individuals in the images were suspected to be between 12 and 17. The case was dismissed due to the inability to verify the individuals’ ages.

Jury verdict: Not guilty


Client was a passenger in a motor vehicle that police stopped for a routine traffic violation. Defense attorney Christa Groshek made a motion to dismiss on the grounds that the client’s constitutional rights were violated when he was searched without probable cause following the tow of the car. The court dismissed the case, ruling that methamphetamine found in the client’s pocket was inadmissible due to the illegally obtained evidence.

A large accident scene appeared suddenly ahead, with a tractor-trailer jackknifed in the road and half a dozen other cars already in the ditch.
