Practice Area: Criminal Law/ Drugs

Charges: Possession of Dangerous Drugs, Class 4 felony; and two Counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, both Class 6 Felonies.

Date: June 28, 2017

Outcome: Dismissal via TASC program diversion


Maricopa County Superior Court: Client Mr. B was alleged to have been in possession of a useable amount of dangerous drugs and two syringes after being stopped in his vehicle by a law enforcement officers investigating a traffic accident. Mr. B was participating in the TASC drug diversion program which typically would have precluded him from participating in the same program again. However, through Ms. Castillo’s negotiations with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office she secured a TASC Diversion plea offer for this case as well, which means upon his completion of the TASC diversion program Mr. B’s case will be dismissed. This will prevent Mr. B from having any felonies on his record.

Results depend upon factors unique to each case. Results in one case do not predict results in another case.
