Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver – NOT GUILTY

People of the State of Illinois v. S.A. | Chicago Attorney

Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver – NOT GUILTY

The Defendant was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver in violation of 720 ILCS 570/401(a) (2) (D). If convicted of this Super Class X Felony the Defendant was facing between 15-60 years in prison. In this case the Defendant was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by the Chicago Police and was found to contain 4 kilos of cocaine. Here, the Chicago Police Department was working with a confidential source and they received information that a particular make and model of car was going to show up at an address at a specific time and would possess a large amount of cocaine. Armed with this information the Chicago Police set up surveillance and when the vehicle arrived they stopped it, searched it, and recovered 4 kilos of cocaine and then arrest the driver and passenger.

The Defendant, the passenger of the vehicle hired Chicago Criminal Lawyer Michael P. Schmiege as one of his lawyers to represent him. The case went to trial and the police officers testified as to what occurred. One of the things that the police did not have was any physical evidence tying the Defendant to the drugs as his fingerprints were not found on the packaging and furthermore the cocaine was recovered in a hidden compartment. The Judge after hearing all of the evidence found that the prosecutor had not proven the case beyond a reasonable doubt as there was no evidence that the Defendant had any knowledge that there were drugs in the car and the Defendant was found NOT GUILTY.

If you or someone you know has been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver it is extremely important that you contact an experienced lawyer to represent you as soon as possible.
