United States vs.K.H. (9th Circuit, Nevada 2013)
Our client was charged in both state and federal courts with cultivating over 100 marijuana plants. At the federal level, this carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison.
Margolin and Lawrence worked with local counsel to dismiss the state case and focus on the federal charges. Through negotiation with federal prosecutors, our client was allowed to plead to Misprision of a Felony and was sentenced to only a few days of community labor.
