Drug Trafficking Conviction Reversed, Vacated and Remanded

After being retained as appellate counsel, Attorneys Marcus Sidoti and Eric Dysert secured reversal and dismissal of a criminal convictions for a young Cleveland Women with no prior criminal record who had previously been convicted at a bench trial of Trafficking in Drugs. The client had previously been sentenced to one year in prison. Counsel argued that the prior case lacked the requisite amount of evidence to sustain a conviction and the Court of Appeals agreed by not only reversing the conviction, but additionally dismissing the entire case against the young woman. All three judges ruled that the case should be reversed vacated and remanded. Mr. Sidoti and his team are now representing the Young Woman in her case for wrongful incarceration as a result of the unjust verdict. The client was immediately released from prison.
