State v. Timothy C., 3rd Circuit- District Division Conway
Trial was scheduled for December 13, 2011 at 1 PM. Mr. C. was charged with possession a controlled drug. The case was called and the State sought a continuance which the Court denied. The case was dismissed for lack of prosecution as the State had failed to have witnesses available for court. Mr. C is a graduate student who will be finishing his degree next spring. A criminal conviction for possessing cannabis would have been devastating for his job search and future. We were prepared for trial and had a very solid defense. Thankfully the State failed to bring a material witness and the matter was dismissed summarily. Mr. C. is now able to finish his schooling and proceed into the workforce without a criminal conviction.
