Possession With Intent to Distribute Cocaine
Mr. Taback's client was charged in Federal Court with transporting cocaine from Sacramento, California, to Seattle, Washington. While represented by other counsel, she unsuccessfully tried to get the court to suppress the cocaine because the defense argued it was unlawfully seized. The judge denied that motion. She pled guilty and was sentenced to ten years in prison.
United States District Court, Sacramento, California.
Mr. Taback along with co-counsel represented the client in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and convinced the court the seizure of the cocaine violated the client's Fourth Amendment rights. The case was dismissed in its entirety and the client was released from prison.
