Student accused of possessing cocaine in his car at his high school. The cocaine in his car was detected by the Houston Independent School District Police with the use of a drug sniffing dog. We were able to demonstrate to the district court judge that the search was illegally conducted, and therefore the fruits of the poisonous tree doctrine mandated that the evidence illegally obtained should be suppressed. Case dismissed.
