Clients received sentences of probation and 3 months in 2 state Class A felony drug prosecutions.

We recently represented 2 individuals in 2 separated state prosecutions involving trafficking in heroin and crack cocaine where one client received probation and the other 3 months incarceration. Both cases resulted vehicle stops by State troopers which we claimed were unlawful requiring suppression of the seized drugs. We filed several page Motions to Suppress which persuaded the prosecutors to reevaluate their cases and to offer these lenient sentences despite the fact that the charges were Class A felonies carrying penalties of up to 30 years in jail.
