My client, a U.S. citizen and resident of New Jersey, retained my firm to represent him in a criminal matter in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida for conspiracy to commit Federal Immigration Crimes related to marriage fraud. Other 4 co-defendants were involved in this case.
Moreover, my client was charged with obtaining a U.S. passport with fraudulent means, allegedly by entering into a sham marriage to obtain a Green Card and
The U.S. government had investigated this case through its agencies, such as FBI, DEA, and ICE for 4 years before criminal charges were actually filed. According to the U.S. government, our client was also involved in international drug trafficking.
This case was prosecuted by a distinguished U.S. Attorney of the Organized Crime Section. We filed a number of motions, such as a motion to dismiss, a motion to suppress evidence unlawfully obtained, and a motion for bills of particulars.
At the eve of trial, the prosecutor dismissed all the charges against our client.
This was an outstanding result, considering that over 93% of the Federal criminal cases result in a conviction.
