PRETRIAL MOTION TO DISMISS GRANTED AND CLIENT GOES TO MEDICAL SCHOOL

Court: Circuit Court for Walton County, DeFuniak Springs, Florida
Charge: Sale or Delivery of Marijuana

Details:

Criminal defense case results for Destin, Fort Walton Beach, and surrounding areasOur client was charged with Sale or Delivery of Marijuana. Allegedly, the client had been receiving large quantities of marijuana via FedEx and would deliver the same to another person that would ultimately conduct the sales.

Outcome:

The charge was dismissed when we recognized that the Statue of Limitations had run. Our client allegedly conducted these transactions while still in high school. Law enforcement attempted to have him be a confidential informant for their future cases. Our client was cooperative but was never contacted by law enforcement even though they knew where he was at all times. Six years after the fact the State filed charges against him. Our client was a superior student at a well-known national university and attempting to get into medical school. He had lived an exemplary life since the alleged incident. A conviction would have been disastrous.

The Circuit Court agreed that the Statute of Limitations had run and the case was dismissed. We also handled the expungement of the client’s record.
