Conspiracy to Distribute $9,000,000 of Cocaine (300 Kilograms)
Life in federal prison
10 years in federal prison
Not Guilty Jury Verdict on All Counts. Our client is a free man and back home with his family in Puerto Rico and able to re-build his legitimate international moving company. Despite the plea agreement proposed by the Government as well as the risk losing at trial would result in a life sentence, attorney Mr. Bower fought for the innocence of his client at trial and proved that 3 different cooperating government witnesses were lying. The jury agreed and found our client not guilty.
“Thank you Tim. Now I will tell you what a friend once told me… What would I ever do without you? And he told me, I don’t know but me without you I would be just fine. I keep saying and I repeat that you are the best. Thank you for being my attorney. Thanks.
