DISMISSED | CULTIVATION of MARIJUANA (14 plants) DISMISSED – State v. Mr. R. (DMC No. 9914) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2009-006670): Mr. R. had gotten into a fight with a friend of his when the friend’s mother called the police. When police arrived, she told them that she had gone the shed at the house the day prior and seen 14 marijuana plants. She took pictures of the plants and provided them to police, stating the Mr. R. was the responsible party. Police interview multiple people (some of whom made admissions), and they tried to interview Mr. R. Mr. R. invoked his right to remain silent and then contacted our firm. The State filed charges almost 2 years later, and the case proceeded through the system. Prior to trial, we convinced the prosecution that they would not be able to meet their burden of proof, as there was no evidence that Mr. R. was actually involved. The State moved to dismiss all charges. There is no conviction on Mr. R.’s record.
