In People v. K.R., the client was charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Second Degree and faced a mandatory period of incarceration between 3 to 10 years, if convicted. The Police intercepted a package sent to the client’s residence that contained a substantial quantity of illegal drugs.
Mr. DeCarolis launched his own vigorous investigation that immediately put the police’s theory of the case into question. Quickly, it become apparent that the the client had no knowledge of the package being sent to his home and was a victim of unfortunate circumstances. A Grand Jury clearly agreed with Mr. DeCarolis’ theory rather than the police and prosecutor and it NO BILLED the case and DISMISSED the charge.
