People v. Armed Meth (2005, Criminal Courts Building):
Our client was on probation for selling meth when he was arrested for armed possession of meth for sale and for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. He faced three years of state prison that had been suspended on the underlying probation case. The district attorney offered him five years — before he retained an attorney.
At trial, Allison Margolin garnered a dismissal of the armed possession for sale of meth charge. Although the jury convicted him of possession of the weapon while being a felon, he received only the time suspended on the probation violation, and nothing more.
