Judge says cop's testimony doesn't pass smell test - Cops claim they smelled the scent of marijuana in a car.... Famed Chicago Defense Attorney for Local Criminals Stuart Goldberg (Known by many as JewBerg) says that's impossible..... Judge agrees - Officers smelled BLACK not GREEN Cannabis
The gun charge against Stephon Mack hinged on the testimony of Chicago police Officer Damen Balesteri.
If a Cook County judge found the longtime officer a credible witness, Mack was likely to be convicted for not having a state firearms card for the gun found in his car — a 9 mm Glock semi-automatic handgun with 26 bullets in the magazine and another in the chamber.
It was a relatively minor charge in a city awash in gun violence, but the police view Mack as a dangerous gang member.
At a court hearing in February, Balesteri testified he and his partner arrested Mack in August 2015 after their vehicles slowly passed one another on the city's South Side.
