State v. Wayne Donaldson
Lower court summary:
In an indictment returned by the Davidson County Grand Jury, Defendant Wayne Lamar Donaldson, Jr., was charged with possession of, with intent to sell or deliver, twenty-six grams or more of a substance containing cocaine within a drug-free school zone. The drugs were seized after a traffic violation stop of Defendant by an officer of the Metropolitan Davidson County Police Department. Defendant filed a motion to suppress all evidence seized during the stop. Following an evidentiary hearing, the trial court entered an order which granted the motion,and subsequently entered an order dismissing the indictment based upon the State’s acknowledgment that it could not proceed to trial without the evidence. The State has appealed. Based upon the finding of facts made by the trial court and the application of the law to those facts, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
