Our client was alleged to be a leader in the Spice and Liquid Ecstasy “liquids” trade among Marines in Okinawa, Japan, when one of his clients became an undercover informant and set up a controlled buy for NCIS. After the controlled buy (wherein our client’s “friends” were wearing wires), our client’s house was searched, and a large amount of Spice was found in his possession.

Thereafter, our client sealed his fate by providing a corroborated, full confession to NCIS, who videotaped him doing so. The Spice was later sent to the United States Army Criminal Investigative Laboratory (USACIL) for testing and came back positive for JWH-018 (now a Schedule I controlled substance).

Our law firm was brought in to do damage control and secure the best deal possible for the client. Through a tough negotiation process and consistently leveraging our willingness to simply try the case, we obtained an outstanding pre-trial agreement which amounted to a time served” deal.
