Trafficking Reduced to Possession with Intent
In Norman, Oklahoma, an old client of mine with many former drug convictions had his fiancé call me after he was arrested for drug trafficking.
It turned out that he threw a bag of meth under his car in a convenience store parking lot when the police approached him. They saw him do it and retrieved the drugs. Because of the weight of the meth it was filed as a trafficking case and he received a recommendation from the District Attorney's office of 10 years in the custody of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
I reviewed the case with him and then with the Assistant District Attorney assigned to the matter and ultimately got his charge reduced to Possession of CDS with Intent to Distribute. By agreement he received a suspended sentence (probation on condition of good behavior).
