12 year sentence and conviction for drug trafficking thrown out—

In a major appellate victory, Attorney Uche persuaded Illinois’ Third District Appellate Court to throw out his client’s 12-year sentence and conviction for drug trafficking.  In People v. Litwin, Attorney Uche persuaded the Appellate court that the video evidence that purported to show the removal of more than 50 pounds of cannabis from his client’s car, had been tampered with.  Additionally, Attorney Uche persuaded the court that the police officers’ version of events was not credible because of major inconsistencies and the fact that none of the K-9 dogs on scene had detected cannabis.  To read more about the case, click here.
