John Doe was arrested for possession of cocaine, possession of burglarious tools and attempted larceny while serving probation for an Arson that occurred in 2005. The Suffolk County Probation Department tried to revoke Mr Doe’s probation because of the new charges. If Mr Doe’s probation was revoked, he faced an additional 3-5 years in state prison.
Attorney Veronica White of White & Associates P.C. conducted a vigorous defense of Mr Doe and contested the charges against Mr. Doe. First, Attorney White had the testimony of the arresting offices excluded. Next Attorney White was able to show that the substance alleged to be cocaine found on Mr Doe could not be proved to be cocaine, because of the testing scandal involving Annie Dookhan and the The Hinton State Laboratory.
Mr. Doe was released and the Court found that there was no evidence to prove that a violation of probation took place.
