Outcome:
Possession with intent to distribute charge dropped and sentencing reduced

Description:
Our Client was originally charged with conspiracy to possess and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine after being present for a controlled buy with a co-defendant. The Client was originally facing a minimum mandatory sentence of 12 years in prison. After a plea negotiation, the U.S. Attorney’s Office agreed to DROP the Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine count and waive the minimum mandatory sentence. The Client was facing a guideline sentence of 57 to 71 months prison. At sentencing, the Defense successfully argued for a significant variance and the Client was sentenced to 37 months in prison followed by 36 months of supervised release.
