While in Las Vegas, a foreign national was accused of committing drug possession, which would have been charged as a felony. When a non-citizen is accused of a crime in the U.S., the ramifications could be more severe than if they were a citizen. Not only could our client have been facing jail time and fines, but their ability to stay in the country could have jeopardized. Our client was attending university in a third country, so their ability to continue their education was also at stake.
When the client came to the team at the Law Office of Chip Siegel for help, we knew the seriousness of the situation and how important it was to successfully resolve their case. Before the charges were even filed, we were able to meet with the prosecutor. We are proud to be able to work out an agreement where the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the entire case. If you have been accused of a crime like drug possession, please contact our team to learn how we could help you.
