RESULT: ReducedClient Charged in Miami Cocaine Trafficking Case Has Charge Reduced and Pleads to Credit Time Served
A young client represented by DMT was arrested and charged with cocaine trafficking. The amount of narcotics seized by law enforcement officers was close to the amount required to charge trafficking in cocaine. A Miami criminal defense lawyer at DMT hired an expert to re-weigh the cocaine. As a result of the re-weigh of the cocaine, the expert determined that it was less than a trafficking amount. As a result, the prosecutor had to reduce the charge and offered our client credit time served. At the beginning of the case, our client was facing a three year minimum for trafficking in cocaine.
RESULT: DismissedWoman Charged in Miami Money Laundering Case Has Charges Dismissed
A Bolivian woman bringing cash into the United States hidden inside the lining of her luggage was arrested at the Miami International Airport and charged with money laundering. The woman failed to declare the cash, as required by law prior to entering the United States. After being interviewed by U.S. Customs agents in Miami, they found over twenty-three thousand ($23,000) dollars sewn into the lining of her luggage. Federal agents placed her under arrest. DMT was able to establish to the satisfaction of the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office that the money was not illegally obtained or tainted. Once this was established, the charges were immediately dismissed and her money was returned.
RESULT: ReducedClient Charged in Miami Cocaine and MDMA Trafficking Case Receives 180 Day County Sentence
Our criminal defense team yet again displayed its tenacious approach in defending criminal cases. After selecting a jury, DMT argued that prosecutors could not go forward with the filed charges due to several technicalities. After destroying the case, our lawyers convinced the judge to sentence our client to just 180 days in the county jail. Prior to the court's offer, our client was facing 65 years in prison.
RESULT: ReducedClient Charged in Miami Marijuana Trafficking Case Receives Credit Time Served
City of Miami narcotics detectives arrived at a house where our client resided. The police received an anonymous tip that our client was operating a grow house, where he was cultivating hundreds of marijuana plants. Several overzealous Miami police arrived brandishing weapons, while our client was working in his front yard. Rather than getting a warrant, police officers obtained consent to search from our client. The police arrested our client for trafficking in marijuana and operating a grow house.
A defense lawyer from DMT drafted a motion to suppress, as Florida case law holds that the State of Florida has to prove that the consent to search was voluntary. Arrests for operating marijuana grow houses are becoming one the most common crimes in Miami and the State of Florida. DMT has successfully convinced prosecutors to waive the minimum mandatory sentences, offer probation plea and sometimes drop the charges altogether.
RESULT: ReducedClients Charged in Miami Mortgage Fraud Case Receive Probation
Economic crimes detectives from the Miami-Dade Police Department arrested a husband and wife for fraudulently obtaining loans in excess of $500,000.00. An attorney from DMT evaluated and analyzed hundreds of pages of alleged evidence and documents gathered by the detectives. Despite the overwhelming evidence against our clients, one of our firm resolved the case by way of a plea for which our client was sentenced to 18 months of probation with a limited amount of restitution. DMT has handled dozens of Miami mortgage fraud cases where, the majority of our client's have not served any term of incarceration.
