State v. Jones

Charge: Trafficking in Hydrocodone

Courts: Walton County Circuit Court

Case Number: 2006 CF 799

Case Category: Motion for Postconviction Relief – Ineffective Assistance of Counsel

Position: The Defendant was convicted by a jury of trafficking in Hydrocodone and sentenced to a minimum mandatory term of fifteen (15) years in the Department of Corrections. Mr. Jones has asked us to file a Motion for Post Conviction Relief based upon Ineffective Assistance of Counsel.

Status: Awaiting Circuit Court’s ruling in regard to trial counsel’s failure to file a Motion to Dismiss the trafficking charge as the weight of the Hydrocodone did not amount to “trafficking” weight.
