RESULT: ReducedDefense Lawyer Saves Client from Three Year Mandatory Prison Sentence for Operating a Miami Marijuana Grow House
DMT represented a client arrested for marijuana trafficking and cultivation by operating a grow house in Hialeah Gardens. Upon the execution of a search warrant, detectives discovered in excess of 100 plants with a weight that subjected our client to a 3 year minimum mandatory sentence.

As a result, the State Attorney's Office waived the mandatory prison sentence and our client avoided prison and served a short term of probation.

RESULT: ReducedCharge of Lewd & Lascivious Battery on a Child Dropped, Allowing Client to Avoid Prison and Designation as a Sexual Offender
A 26 year-old man was charged with lewd and lascivious battery and child sexual abuse on a child 13 years of age. The man faced fifteen (15) years in state prison and the prospect of being designated as a sexual offender for the remainder of his life - a designation that would restrict his employment options, as well as places where he could live, and it would have resulted in his picture and profile being listed on the Internet. He hired the Miami criminal law firm of DMT. The Miami-Dade County Police Department's Sexual Crimes Bureau investigated the case and obtained a taped statement from the victim and her mother. In addition, the client had reportedly waived his Miranda Rights and gave the detectives a full confession to the crime alleged. At the conclusion of the case, the Miami-Dade County State Attorney reduced the charges and dropped the request that the client be designated as a sexual offender. The client received only one year of probation. He will now be eligible to have his criminal record sealed.
