Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
LibertyBell Law Group’s criminal lawyers encountered, for the first time, a new drug that is an LSD look-alike while successfully representing a client in Illinois. Little is known about this new synthetic drug that entered the U.S. from Europe, according to the assistant state attorney who worked on this case. Authorities said it was the first case of its kind in the county, and perhaps even in that state.
The criminal lawyers succeeded in getting the felony charge of distribution of a controlled substance, (also known as drug trafficking), dismissed for the client (Circuit Court of the Fifth Judicial Circuit, Coles County, Charleston, Illinois, case #2012cf474), which ultimately ended up also helping the co-defendant. The client could have gone to prison for a very long time and been forced to pay hefty fines. The criminal lawyers from LibertyBell Law Group skillfully negotiated a plea involving no jail time if the client doesn’t violate probation for 180 days. The client was also put on two year probation, and upon successful completion there will be no conviction on record.
LibertyBell Law Group’s client was initially charged with possession and distribution of the controlled substance, LSD, according to court documents. However, lab results later showed the actual makeup of the compound, an LSD look-alike. The suspects in this case were placing the synthetic drug on perforated paper squares, analogous to LSD. This new drug, NBOMe, is known as 2C-I, “N-Bomb”, or “smiles” on the street. It looks and acts like LSD. This synthetic drug is relatively new to the U.S.
“Our lawyers are dedicated to our clients. These defendants were young and had their whole lives ahead of them. A serious criminal conviction such as this could ruin their lives forever. Our client is attending the substance abuse treatment needed. We’re very happy with the winning results on this case,” says top criminal lawyer from LibertyBell Law Group, Gina Tennen.
