Case Results

Trafficking Oxycodone (15 year/$500,000 minimums)

Lesser Offense - 6/22/2017

6/22/17- Orange County - Client was set up by an acquaintance, who was working as a Confidential Informant, to buy 120 pills of Oxycodone from an undercover law enforcement officer. The client was originally facing a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years prison (up to 30 years) and a $500,000 fine. Longwell Lawyers prepared the case for trial by obtaining discovery, taking depositions, and pursuing an entrapment defense. As a result, the government offered our client a lesser offense with 3 years prison and no fine or probation. The client accepted the offer in lieu of proceeding with further litigation. Any sentence less than a dismissal or a Not Guilty is a disappointment, especially when it involves incarceration. However, our client obtained the best possible outcome under the circumstances, without risking a minimum mandatory 15 years prison/$500,000 fine – up to 30 years prison.

Result: client accepted plea to lesser offense with 3 years prison and no fine or probation instead of risking a minimum mandatory 15 years prison/$500,000 fine – up to 30 years prison.

Juvenile - Armed Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling with a Firearm

Dropped - 6/14/2017

Orange County - Our client was arrested and initially held in juvenile detention without release based upon an allegation made by a school-mate who claimed that our client, along with another individual, broke down the front door of a home and invaded the home while occupied by the school-mate. Longwell Lawyers was able to get the client released and immediately prepared the case for trial. During depositions it was established that the witness/school-mate only quickly peeked out to see who was breaking-in, and only saw the back of the head of the person who he identified as our client. Furthermore, an alibi defense was asserted establishing that our client was at home at the time of the alleged offense. Finally, evidence was uncovered that another individual, who looked similar to our client, was associating with the other accused "co-defendant" and was allegedly committing other burglaries at about the same time. As such, Longwell Lawyers was able to convince the officer and the prosecutor that the case involved a mistaken identification and got the prosecutor to drop the case on the day of trial.

Result: charge dropped by the state
