State v. Mr. M (DMC No. 5699)

NOT CHARGED | MISCONDUCT with WEAPON (prohibited possessor)/POSSESSION of DANGEROUS DRUGS and MARIJUANA NOT CHARGED – State v. Mr. M. (DMC No. 5699) (White Tank Justice Court TR05-00443): Mr. M. was observed driving in a truck on State Route 101, when he drifted into the “Gore Point”. The officer pulled him over, discovered several passengers in the car with Mr. M. Mr. M. was subsequently arrested for extreme DUI and produced a .230 BAC. Inside of the truck, a gun was found under the seat along with marijuana and anabolic steroids. Mr. M. invoked his right to remain silent. We were able to convince the Prosecutor that the gun, marijuana and steroids could have belonged to any of the people in the vehicle. They agreed to not press those charges, and eventually allowed Mr. M. to plead to only an extreme DUI with just 10 days in jail. Mr. M. would have been facing 3 to 6 years in prison for being a “prohibited possessor” if he were charged and convicted.
