A man was charged with a felony charge related to marijuana. The Muskegon County prosecutor’s played hardball the whole time. The Muskegon prosecutor’s office claimed they were going to file additional charges if the man didn’t plead guilty as charged.
Thankfully, we didn’t allow our client to break to the pressure from the Muskegon County prosecutor’s office. We filed a motion to suppress evidence. Sadly, that motion was denied and it was a huge blow to our case. We kept fighting. We set the case up for a trial and showed up for trial ready to fight for our client. On the day of trial, the prosecutor’s office finally offered to drop the felony charges! Our client was extremely pleased with the results!
