Narcotics Sale and Weapons Charge
Client, who had a criminal history and addiction to narcotics was arrested for illegally carrying a gun and sale of narcotics. Prosecutor wanted to make him a convicted felon and put him in prison for an extended period of time based on facts of case and prior criminal history. After extensive investigation by Mr. Schwartz, client was able to provide enough mitigation that convinced the court to give him a withhold of adjudication thus allowing him to avoid being a convicted felon. He was also placed on 2 years of probation with no jail/prison time as he was facing 30 years in Florida State Prison.
