Driving Under the Influence- All Charges Dismissed

DRUG CHARGE: Alameda County client was arrested in Oakland and charged with a misdemeanor violation of Vehicle Code Section 23152(e) – driving under the influence of drugs and a misdemeanor violation of Health and Safety Code Section 11550(a) – (under the influence of a controlled substance). After aggressive investigation and use of a forensic toxicologist who confirmed that our client was not impaired when driving, further negotiations with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office resulted in our client being able to get all charges dismissed after attending 12 Narcotics Anonymous classes

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
