(The Post and Courier) – A convicted drug dealer could potentially walk free from prison in coming months after the state Supreme Court ruled North Charleston police violated his rights by attaching a GPS device to his vehicle without a warrant.

Alfred Adams, Jr., 46, of Harrier Drive in Hanahan, was behind bars Friday at Lee Correctional Institution serving a 25-year sentence for trafficking 148 grams of cocaine.

His 2010 conviction stemmed from a November 2008 traffic stop and arrest on University Boulevard.
