Case against alleged fugitive drug trafficker dismissed

November 2017

November 14, 2017, Dorchester District Court case no. 0007CR004912 charging cocaine trafficking and related drug offenses. Government alleges that client possessed narcotics in an after-market hidden compartment in vehicle. Represented by prior counsel, client appears for trial. When government answers ready, attorney advises client to plead guilty. Client defaults, forfeiting bail and remaining in fugitive status until he retains our firm. In 2017, we appear to remove the warrant, client released on $1,000 bail. We appear for trial on November 14, 2017, again, all witnesses present. When we answer ready for trial, prosecutor concedes insufficient evidence to warrant prosecution; case dismissed.
