Dismissed! No Case, No Conviction for Woman Charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance
The Hammer Law Firm, LLC is pleased to announce that our team has recently secured a successful case dismissal on behalf of a client!
The case involved law enforcement officers responding to a domestic assault call at our client’s home. When they arrived, our client insisted that she was not a victim of domestic violence. Still, officers entered and searched her home.
After searching the residence, officers found legally purchased weapons and prescription medication belonging to the client. Despite the fact that our client had a valid prescription, she was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and was offered a plea deal to testify against her husband - a felon - that the guns belonged to him. Our client rejected the plea deal.
Ultimately, it was determined from lab results that our client was legally prescribed the controlled substance in question. Because the prescription was valid, our client did not have to testify against her spouse and her case was dismissed!
