Knecht earns 3rd dismissal of charges in 2018!


For the third time in 2018, Steven Knecht obtained the dismissal of felony drug dealing charges for his client.

Police went to an apartment looking for an individual. The written police report claimed that five individuals were eventually removed from the apartment. A subsequent search of the apartment resulted in the discovery of drugs.

Upon review of the police body camera videos, Knecht discovered that a sixth individual was removed from the apartment who was not mentioned in the police reports. The police talked to this sixth individual who was then allowed to reenter the apartment unescorted by the police and to leave with a backpack that was removed from the apartment.
