People vs. Nick Stuart

Mark Joseph Sullivan

Case Conclusion Date:April 23, 2002

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Not Guilty Verdict

Description:This was a case wherein the defendant was caught red handed with drugs and a large amount of money. Or so it seemed. It turns out that he was a fall guy, set up by a drug dealer who had been using him as a pawn to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The sheriff's department came in on him in a hotel room because they had been asked to go there by someone whom it turned out was the actual drug dealer who wanted the defendant to take the fall. The jury saw through this charade and acquitted nick after deliberating for only a few minutes.
