POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA
A Lawful Permanent Resident was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Harlingen, Texas and placed in removal proceedings. The Client had possession of marijuana charges (1,300 pounds) pending against him in Starr County, Texas. Our Client was charged with “reason to believe” drug trafficking and subject to inadmissibility. The office of the chief counsel served our client with two different charging documents. After fighting this case for several weeks, and showing the Office of Chief Counsel that they could not meet their burden of proof, the charges were withdrawn and the case dismissed. Our Client was released from custody and reunited with his family.
