Charges: Possession of Class B substance (cocaine) with intent to distribute in a school zone, assault with a dangerous weapon (2 counts), failure to stop for police, resisting arrest, leaving the scene of an accident causing property damage
Result: Motion to vacate defendant’s convictions allowed and all charges dismissed.
I successfully argued that at the time my client offered a plea to these charges, his decision was not made willfully and with a full knowledge of the evidence against him. Prior to the plea, the Commonwealth failed to turn over key evidence against my client, which may have been exculpatory. The Commonwealth agreed and decided not to oppose our motion and the charges were dismissed.
