Marijuana Charges Dropped against Juvenile
My client was charged with possession of marijuana in juvenile court. The state's case was fairly strong. They observed her with marijuana close to school property. She was a juvenile who had never had juvenile delinquency charges in the past. The state had their witnesses available and the evidence was analyzed. It would not have been a difficult case for the state to prove. Rather than fight the case we were able to successfully negotiate a resolution wherein the charges would be dismissed if my client attended a drug education class, performed some community service, wrote an apology letter, stayed out of trouble and otherwise did the right thing.
These projects were easy because my client is a good student and a decent person. Because she did these things the prosecution outright dismissed the charges in juvenile court and the delinquency petition is dismissed and the case is closed.
If you are charged with a drug offense, please contact me. Since 1986 I have handled all manner of drug cases including possession, distribution, possession with intent to distribute, conspiracy as to all manner of drugs.
