  • <strong>Arizona Attorney Richard Suzuki</strong>

When you consider that the original offer from the prosecutor included prison time, it doesn't get any better than a dismissal.

    PHOENIX, AZ, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On Dec. 13, 2013, Judge Cindy Jorgenson ordered the dismissal of a criminal indictment brought by federal authorities against a young Arizona woman. The woman faced substantial prison time for an alleged crime that involved 150 bricks of marijuana stashed in the back of her Chevy pickup truck and brought across the border from Mexico into Arizona.

The case is USA v. Jaquez (case number 4:13-cr-01303-CKJ-DTF).

THE FACTS

There was a lot at stake for this young college student - including more than four years in prison - and it started with a trip to Mexico to visit family.

While in Mexico, a friend asked the young woman to take 15 secured tile boxes to Phoenix in return for gas money. This was June 30, 2013, and the woman (along with her 80-year-old grandmother) was stopped at a US Border Patrol checkpoint in Tombstone, Ariz. Here, a drug dog alerted to the presence of drugs, and federal agents found 150 bricks of marijuana stashed inside the secured tile boxes.

The US Attorney's Office offered a deal: In exchange for a guilty plea, the young woman would get a lesser prison sentence.

But the young woman did not take the deal. Instead, Richard Suzuki of Suzuki Law Offices in Phoenix worked to get the case dismissed, sparing his client prison time and keeping her record clean. It took six months to gather the evidence needed to secure that dismissal, but ultimately the US Attorney's Office conceded its case.

Thanks to Suzuki Law Offices, this young woman got back to her life, free to continue her career as a student, and free from a criminal indictment hanging over her head.

Suzuki Law Offices, based in Phoenix and Tempe, Ariz., represents people injured in accidents and charged with crimes. Owner Richard Suzuki is a former federal prosecutor.
