My client was pulled over for speeding and committing other traffic violations. The police saw a baggie containing hashish in his center console. After being arrested and searched, the police found a knife, other drug paraphernalia and some crack cocaine.


I negotiated a referral to the Federal Alternative Measures Program. My client performed 40 hours of community service work and all of the criminal charges were withdrawn. No criminal convictions.
