On Tuesday, July 28, 2015, Chicago's 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a conviction that Lex played a role in. The opinion stems from an appeal by Larry Bentley Jr, a St. Louis man serving 20 years in prison for drug possession. He argued the 20 kilograms of cocaine Bloomington police found in his car during a 2010 traffic stop derived from an illegal search triggered by Lex.
