The judge, after taking a recess to research the issue, reconvened and agreed with us that the State’s witnesses were to be precluded from testifying that our client possessed drugs or drug paraphernalia. The State, in sheer frustration and exasperation, told the judge that they could not proceed with the case. The judge then entered a Judgment of Acquittal on our client’s behalf.
