As your lawyer, I will do everything in my ability to defend you. The only basis we have to go off of really is that you were at the scene , but you took no part in the dealing. In fact, reports say that when the officer searched you he found no evidence of drugs. In a sense you are the victim. We will make that point.
Sounds good, but what should I say when questioned?
Strictly the truth; state only what you know. Keep details limited so the plaintiff cannot use such against you.
The trial process is unnecessary. Admit your guilt and not only will you spare us the trouble you will be granted a lighter sentence for your crimes.
Ms. Vohn, unfortunately, my client and I must decline. I feel we have a strong case.
The day of the crime committed Filipe was present at the scene. He also happens to have relations with the dealer and has a non-validated US citizenship. He's been struggling financially which explains the drug dealing.
Filipes citizenship status does not pertain to the case. Reports given by the officer at the scene verified that, yes, Filipe was present but when searched had no traces of drug possession Whereas, his cousin had drugs out in full view trying to persuade Filipe.
Based off of the evidence presented that pertains only to this case, I have determined Filipe to be innocent and released from confinement. He is free of any charges.
