Mexican National Charged With Felony Methamphetamine Trafficking

Posted in: by Troy Wisehart

A Mexican national who had not legally immigrated to the U.S. was driving on the Ohio turnpike when police officers pulled him over. After a thorough search of his car, officers found a large amount of methamphetamine. He was immediately charged with 1st-degree felony drug trafficking and preparation of drugs for sale. In the state of Ohio, a 1st-degree felony is the most serious type of criminal charge outside of a capital offense. The seriousness of this charge required an experienced and dedicated criminal defense attorney. The man then chose Sandusky attorney Troy Wisehart of Kademenos, Wisehart, Hines, Dolyk & Wright Co. LPA to represent him.

It came as no surprise that our client was looking at up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000 based on the amount of methamphetamine that was allegedly in his possession. Attorney Wisehart immediately filed a motion to suppress the evidence found in the man’s truck, arguing that it had been found through an illegal search and seizure. After a hearing in which Wisehart advocated on behalf of his client, the judge agreed with Wisehart that the charge had been based on evidence obtained in an illegal search of the vehicle. The judge dismissed the methamphetamine trafficking charge —- a beyond successful outcome for the level of severity our client faced.
