Commonwealth v. SA – Never Settle For A Guilty Plea

SA was charged was Felony Possession with Intent to Deliver, Felony VUFA, and Misdemeanor Possession of a Controlled Substance.  SA was allegedly dealing drugs on the streets with a firearm.  SA supposedly stashed the drugs and gun in a car as police surveilled the area.  Police arrested SA and found a clear plastic bag of crack cocaine on his person.  Drugs and other contraband were found in a car near the arrest location.  The DA offered SA the unsatisfactory offer of pleading guilty to felony charges.

SA retained the Law Office of Mark D. Copoulos fight the case.  Attorney Copoulos located and interviewed multiple witnesses.  These witnesses were at the scene when SA was arrested.  The witnesses credibly informed Attorney Copoulos that SA never stashed a gun or drugs in the car.  Attorney Copoulos called both witnesses to the stand at trial, where they testified credibly.

At the conclusion of trial,  Attorney Copoulos’s argument ultimately convinced the sitting judge that SA neither possessed a firearm nor drugs with intent to deliver.  The result was an acquittal on all felony charges.  If you or a loved one has been charged with a felony, contact the Law Office of Mark D. Copoulos for a free consultation.
