Trafficking dropped to constructive possession!!!!!
And it only took a few months to get it dropped to a lesser charge. A misdemeanor at that!!!!!. My brother was charged with trafficking 163 grams of methamphetamine along with a list of other charges,ridiculed by the sheriff's department's Facebook page and their hypocrite cronies. I thought he was toast. Peter, you're a blessing and I'm so glad I hired you to be my brother's lawyer.Anyone, would be a fool go elsewhere. Not to mention he's the lawyer that I went to trial by jury with and was found not guilty!!!! You go Peter!!!! Thumbs up!!!!
