ARS 13-3407 Possession for Sale of Dangerous Drugs – Dismissed

Matt was a passenger in a car that was stopped and searched by police. The police found a backpack with ecstasy inside and packaged for individual sales. Matt exercised his right to remain silent. The driver of the vehicle, however, told police the backpack was Matt’s and he was charged with possession for sale. Matt was on probation for marijuana possession the year prior.  The prosecutor wanted to send Matt to prison for 5 years. Matt’s father hired Burges and he got to work investigating the case.  He showed the prosecutor the weaknesses in the case and the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the charge. Matt doesn’t hang out with that other guy anymore.
