State v. G. B. 

Stangl Law Offices defended a client who had been charged with possession of two ounces of marijuana in Wisconsin. 

The charges arose after law enforcement had responded to complaints of a lot of traffic coming and going from a particular apartment complex. Essentially, cars would pull into the apartment complex, drivers would enter the building and then leave shortly after. 

In response to this complaint, the police began surveillance of the property.

An individual was stopped during this surveillance, as police officers suspected the reason for the individual's visit was to purchase drugs. After stopping at the building, then existing the building and driving away, this individual was stopped by police.

When he was stopped by police and questioned, the individual admitted he had just purchased marijuana for his personal use and turned the marijuana over to the officers. He was then charged with possession and taken into custody.

It was then that his family hired Attorney Pat Stangl to represent him.

Attorney Stangl questioned whether law enforcement's observations were, in fact, sufficient to establish a reasonable suspicion to legally stop his client's vehicle based solely on his client's entry into the apartment complex and his client's exit therefrom.

After some legal wrangling, and before filing a formal motion challenging the legality of the seizure, Attorney Stangl was able to convince the prosecutor the criminal charges against his client should be dismissed.

Based on all the presented circumstances in the case, the prosecution agreed it would not pursue criminal prosecution of Attorney Stangl's client.
