Possession of Marijuana - Case Dismissed

Criminal

Mr. Gilbert represented an 18 year old client with no criminal history who saw friends parked in an apartment parking lot.  The client went to visit them and sat in the back seat of their car.  Shortly after the client arrived, a police officer approached the vehicle under the pretense of smelling marijuana coming from the car.  The driver, front seat passenger and client were all arrested for possession of marijuana.  Mr. Gilbert worked with the client to encourage him to go to trial on the case.  Despite having had the option to have the case reduced to a fine only offense, the client followed Mr. Gilbert's advice and the case was set for trial.  On the day of the trial, Mr. Gilbert was able to secure a dismissal for the client.
