Medical Marijuana Arrest

A client with a medical marijuana card came to me with a ticket for a marijuana DUI. I was able to get charges drastically reduced - she was innocent.

Blood Test Proved No Marijuana DUI

One would think that once the blood result was shown to the District Attorney’s Office that the case would be dismissed. No! She was offered to plead guilty to reckless driving with six to twelve months worth of alcohol and drug classes and a large amount of community service. She politely refused their offer and brought the matter to me.

Charges Reduced With Sharp Investigative Work

As a criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs I see cases all over the spectrum. Some clients are absolutely guilty and others are absolutely innocent. One of the hardest perceptions to overcome is that a person is guilty if the police arrest them. The idea that the police never get it wrong is false. Luckily for my client, even though she had a medical marijuana card and appeared guilty to the arresting officer, science proved them wrong and her right. I went to work, reviewed the evidence, and the case was resolved with a reduced speeding charge with a small fine.

The District Attorney Is Not On Your Side

Please realize that the District Attorney is not on your side. They represent the State. As a former prosecutor, I can tell you that most do what they think is right, but that may not be what is in your best interest. In this case, even though my client had a medical marijuana card and a blood test proved her innocent, without me it meant that the Deputy District Attorney felt that my client was somehow getting away with something. They wanted to punish her for behavior that she did not do.
