Success in the court room

State officials dropped all charges against a teenager who was facing four felony charges and up to 37 years in prison in connection with a high-profile luxury car theft in St. Peters, Missouri which occurred in March of 2018.

The defendant was charged with three counts of Felony Stealing over $25,000 and one count of 2nd Degree Burglary. Court documents filed by state prosecutors alleged that suspects broke into a Mid-Rivers car dealership and stole among other things a 2018 Maserati.

A motion to suppress evidence filed by the defendant’s attorney, Ryan Krupp argued that there was no physical evidence linking the defendant to the crime scene.

“We’re happy with the result and think the decision to drop the charges was fair and ethical. A true win for the justice system,” said Krupp.

The defendant’s trial was set to begin Tuesday, December 4th.
