Client Advocacy that Goes Beyond Traditional Defense

A shipmate persuaded my client, a 21-year old navy seaman, to go to Mexico to buy a used auto at a discounted price. It turns out that this shipmate was a Mexican national who would recruit seamen to go to Mexico, buy cars, and distract them while other people loaded large amounts of marijuana onto the cars. The shipmen would then unknowingly smuggle the drugs across the US-Mexico border.

In this instance, the shipmate tried to get my client to smuggle 200-pounds of pot across the border without his knowledge. My client and the shipmate were caught by law enforcement. The shipmate, however, cooperated with Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) officials and said my client was part of a plot to smuggle pot across the border. Because the shipman had provided contradicting sworn testimony to Naval Criminal Investigative Agents regarding what happened, I was able to expose that the shipman committed perjury under oath during the trial.

A jury found my client not guilty.
