HUNG JURY – TRAFFICKING METHAMPHETAMINE TRIAL LEADS TO DISMISSAL

Client was charged with one count of Trafficking Methamphetamine, which carries a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence in prison and a $200,000 fine. The State was unwilling to reduce our client’s charges to avoid prison time, so we announced ready for trial. During the trial, we argued to the jury that our client was not involved in trafficking methamphetamine and that all the drugs belonged to his co-defendant, who was the owner of the house where the methamphetamine was located. After deliberations, the jury convicted the co-defendant and a hung jury was declared against our client. Rather than go through another jury trial, the State eventually dismissed the Trafficking Methamphetamines charge against our client.
