Experienced criminal defense representation leads to dismissal of felony drug charges in Dobbs Ferry


A nineteen year old client was charged with Criminal Possession of Controlled Substance in the Fourth Degree, a class C Felony, and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, a class B felony, in the Dobbs Ferry Justice Court. He was charged together with a co-defendant. Having been charged with extremely serious drug crimes the client was facing a very substantial state prison sentence.

It was alleged by the prosecution, the Westchester County District Attorney's Office, that the client and his co-defendant were drug dealers who were acting in concert with each other selling drugs on the street. The case involved surveillance of the defendant by the Dobbs Ferry Police Department.

Our office aggressively pursued our client's not guilty plea on the basis that our client was not involved with his co-defendant's drug dealing despite the police surveillance and based upon the prosecution's very weak circumstantial evidence.

Eventually, our office convinced the prosecutor's office that the felony criminal charges against our client should be dismissed. This led to the Dobbs Ferry Court dismissing all charges against our client. This case is a perfect example of why a criminal defense lawyer must challenge all of the prosecutions evidence.

Our aggressivecriminal defense approach to this case ensured that our nineteen year old client's future and reputation were well protected. This is why it is absolutely vital for any person charged with a crime to seek a highly experienced criminal defense lawyers to protect their rights and interests.
