We were set to begin Jury Selection this past Monday in the State of Texas v. Antonio Armstrong, Jr. After learning about missing evidence last Friday, the Court granted a continuance until the defense had an opportunity to learn more and evaluate the consequences of the missing evidence for our client at trial. The trial has now been rescheduled for March 27, 2020.
You can learn more about that case here:
In another matter, a client was charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled by having THC oil in a vape pen. After reaching out to the prosecutors regarding the testing issue to prove the THC is greater than 3%, the prosecutor’s office declined to move forward with that case.
Finally, five of eight Minor in Consumption cases arising from a house party in a small town were dismissed this past week due to the officer’s illegal entry into the home. We fully expect the remaining three cases will be dismissed before the end of this month.
Now that the Armstrong case has been continued, we are preparing for other upcoming jury trials and working up other client cases. We will be in touch with each client soon about the status of your individual cases.
2020 is kicking off in full swing. Hang in there; it’s going to be a great year!
