Reduced Sentence for Client Charged with Multiple Drug & Drug Trafficking Offenses
On behalf of Randall & Stump, PLLC in Drug Crimes on Tuesday, June 26, 2018
After a confidential informant purchased narcotics on two occasions from our client, on video, the client was charged with 14 drug charges, including trafficking, sale, delivery, possession, and possession with the intent to sell and deliver heroin/opium. Four of the charges in question were trafficking-related and carry a mandatory prison term in North Carolina. In all, the client was facing a mandatory minimum of 300 months and a potential term of over 400 months in prison. Our Charlotte drug lawyers worked on his behalf and secured an arraignment to limit his possible consequences. In the end, the client pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted trafficking, which disposed of all minimum mandatory sentences and mandatory fines estimated at over $200,000. The client was sentenced to 30 months with a voluntary surrender at a later date and possibility of work release.
