Federal Methamphetamine Conspiracy Violation Under 21 U.S.C. § 846 – CASA Program – Complete Dismissal!

Approximately fifteen months ago, in the United States District Court, Central District of California, our client, who was charged in Count One with a felony violation of 21 U.S.C. § 846 (Conspiracy to Distribute and to Possess with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine) and in Count Two with a felony violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1956(h)(Laundering of Money Instruments), and was accepted into the Conviction and Sentence Alternatives (CASA) program.[1]

During her time in the CASA program, our client underwent intensive supervision and had regular court appearances before the CASA team, participated in programs intended to address the causes of her criminal conduct, substance abuse and/or mental health treatment, received employment and education program assistance, and underwent regular random drug testing.

Our client was facing a mandatory minimum of 120 months (ten years) in federal prison and a maximum of life for the offenses charged.

Based on her successful completion of the CASA program, our client’s federal charges were completely dismissed! This result allowed our client to avoid federal prison time and gain valuable resources from the CASA team – all while earning a complete dismissal!
