Possession of Cocaine
Client was a hard-working contractor. According to Police, was seen purchasing cocaine from someone and was pulled over by police. When he was pulled over, he freely and politely admitted that he had purchased cocaine. Police gave him a summons to appears in court and before he had to appear Attorney Barabino got him tested for drugs and obtained a clean drug screen. When they both appeared in court, Attorney Barabino was able to negotiate a deal whereby the court would extend his arraignment for 3 months and during that time if client is tested and clean, he will never be arraigned and the case dismissed, BEFORE the arraignment. That day has come, and the case was DISMISSED prior to arraignment. There is no trace of the charges in any court record.
RESULT: District Attorney Agrees to PRE-ARRAIGNMENT Drug Testing and Case is DISMISSED.
