Drug charge against former ETSU basketball player dismissed

MARCUS DUBOSE

A Washington County Criminal Court judge said it was unconstitutional for a college postal employee to open a student’s package, which led to that student’s being charged with possession of marijuana for resale.

 Marcus DuBose, 25, originally from Hartsville, S.C., walked out of court a free man Thursday after Judge Stacy Street suppressed all the drug evidence related to the case — including the quarter pound of marijuana buds inside the package. 

“As expected, in my opinion, the judge did what was the appropriate thing. He found that the postal employee illegally opened a private package,” said DuBose’s attorney, Cliff Corker.
