Case 141

Client was accused of Possession of Marijuana. The POM misdemeanor was being leveraged to revoke client’s parole and possibly send client to prison for a significant number of years. The accusations and arrest were made by a drug task force officer who essentially profiled our client as a drug dealer because he was African American and wearing an all red-colored outfit. Client maintained his innocence throughout the entire process. After visiting the scene of the arrest and photographing the location we were able to convince the Prosecutor the Police Officer humanly could NOT have observed what he alleged to observe.
