Charge: Possession of Marijuana

Maximum Sentence: 364 days in County Jail

Venue: Miami-Dade County Florida – Misdemeanor County Court

Case: Fxx-23xxx

Charges: Fleeing and Eluding Police, Cocaine Possession and four counts of Drug Paraphernalia Possession

Maximum Sentence: 12 years in prison

Venue: Miami-Dade County Florida – Felony Circuit Court

Resolution: Charges never filed (No Action) – After meeting with the client at his initial consultation, the defense was made aware of the possibility of a video recording of the entire incident.  The defense quickly obtained a copy of security video footage which showed the client’s entire encounter with the police officer.  The video clearly showed that the police officer was lying about the client’s fleeing and eluding as well as the manner in which the officer searched the client’s vehicle.  The video was presented to the Assistant State Attorney and they refused to file charges.  The Assistant State Attorney also notified the arresting officer’s supervisor regarding the clearly false arrest affidavit that the officer had filed.
