Mayfield Denied In Latest Court Date

Jeremy Mayfield was denied today in his bid to have the results of multiple search warrants ruled inadmissible in his ongoing felony drug case.

Attorneys for the suspended NASCAR driver said search warrants that led to the discovery of methamphetamine and stolen property on Mayfield’s property were based on information provided by

John Kavann Franklin, who was indicted as a co-defendant along with Mayfield on seven felony counts of breaking and entering and three felony counts of larceny. Franklin died in a high speed police chase on Sept. 16, 2012, and officials recently dropped 10 felony counts of breaking and entering and larceny against Mayfield, saying that without Franklin’s testimony, they were unable to prove their case. 

Mayfield still faces three felony counts of possession of stolen goods and one felony count of obtaining stolen goods by false pretenses in Catawba County, where items were stolen from the Fitz Motorsports and Red Bull Racing NASCAR teams. His attorneys had filed a motion to suppress evidence discovered as a result of those search warrants, but were rebuffed today in Catawba County Court in Newton, NC.
