Eric Bain Helps Client Avoid Drug Conviction, Keep Driver’s License
Eric’s client was charged with Misdemeanor Marijuana in a Motor Vehicle and Petty Misdemeanor Drug Paraphernalia in the city of Eagan in Dakota County. The Marijuana in a Motor Vehicle charge carries a 30-day revocation of driving privileges. After a thorough review of the evidence, Eric discovered the officer had a weak basis for stopping Eric’s client. Eric spoke with the prosecutor and negotiated a resolution involving a stay of adjudication. This allowed Eric’s client to avoid a criminal conviction and maintain his driver’s license, as long as he did not pick up new similar charges and paid some costs. This was crucial to Eric’s client because he needs to drive to work and a drug conviction would pose future employment problems for him.
