WITHDRAWAL and DISMISSAL of ALL Charges and Specifications ONE DAY before trial. NO Federal Drug Conviction, NO Confinement, NO Discharge.
May 5, 2017, U.S. v. E-4, United States Air Force, Holloman AFB, New Mexico. Senior Airman is accused of the possession and use and limited distribution of several illegal Schedule I Controlled Substances, to include marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and DMT. Fifteen other Airmen are implicated of the possession and use of these illegal substances to include others as well. Senior Airman retains Mr. Gapasin to take his case to trial in order to avoid a Federal Conviction for drug use, which could seriously affect any employment following his Air Force career. Gapasin pushes forward in this case with over 6000 pages of discovery and 15 co-defendants. Many of the Airmen take guilty pleas at the advice of their ADCs, others proceed to trial and are found guilty. Client's case was moved to a later date by the Government so it could maximize the use of immunized witnesses whose trials have already been resolved or where they received a finding of guilty. Gapasin presses forward despite the several convictions against previously tried co-defendants. Just two duty days before trial, certain witnesses receive immunity and Gapasin interviews the witnesses revealing clear problems with the credibility of the Government's “snitches.” Gapasin continues to press to trial. One day before trial, with Gapasin continuing to press, the Government acknowledges the clear problems in its case. RESULT: WITHDRAWAL and DISMISSAL of ALL Charges and Specifications ONE DAY before trial. NO Federal Drug Conviction, NO Confinement, NO Discharge.
