FELONY DRUG CHARGES IN DOBBS FERRY DISMISSED
A nineteen year old client was charged with Criminal Possession of Controlled
Substance in the Fourth Degree, a class C Felony, and
Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, a class B felony, in the Dobbs Ferry Justice Court.
He was charged together with a co-defendant. Having been charged with
extremely serious drug crimes the client was facing a very substantial
state prison sentence.
It was alleged by the prosecution, the Westchester County District Attorney's
Office, that the client and his co-defendant were drug dealers who were
acting in concert with each other selling drugs on the street. The case
involved surveillance of the defendant by the Dobbs Ferry Police Department.
Our office aggressively pursued our client's not guilty plea on the
basis that our client was not involved with his co-defendant's drug
dealing despite the police surveillance and based upon the prosecution's
very weak circumstantial evidence.
Eventually, our office convinced the prosecutor's office that the felony
criminal charges against our client should be dismissed. This led to the
Dobbs Ferry Court dismissing all charges against our client. This case
is a perfect example of why a criminal defense lawyer must challenge all
of the prosecutions evidence.
Our aggressivecriminal defense approach to this case ensured that our nineteen year old client's future and
reputation were well protected. This is why it is absolutely vital for
any person charged with a crime to seek a highly experienced criminal
defense lawyers to protect their rights and interests.
