Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana: Probation
Massachusetts State Police conducted a traffic stop of a Plymouth man for speeding. Upon running the man’s license and vehicle registration, police learned of a warrant for the man’s arrest. The trooper arrested the man based upon the warrant and conducted an inventory search of his vehicle.
This yielded the discovery of approximately 20 pounds of marijuana and hundreds of units (in multiple varieties) of marijuana edibles inside the man’s trunk. Police arrested and charged the man with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
He was arraigned in Wareham District Court and initially held without bail. In response, his family immediately retained Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer, John L. Calcagni III, to defend him in this matter.
Attorney Calcagni first secured the man’s release on cash bail in District Court. Once indicted, Attorney Calcagni successfully persuaded the Plymouth County Superior Court to keep the man on bail.
He then appeared on the man’s behalf for multiple pretrial conferences. Ultimately, Attorney Calcagni negotiated a resolution of this case that enabled the man to avoid jail time and instead serve a sentence of two years on probation.
