STATE V. C.H.-3

County: McLeod (6/2011)
Charges: Two Felony Charges of Drug Possession (Opium and Marijuana) 5th Degree Controlled Substance
Outcome: The State charged C.H. with felony possession of 228 grams of Marijuana and 1.6 grams of Opium. The felony Opium charge was DISMISSED, and Ryan Pacyga successfully argued for and obtained a Stay of Adjudication for his client, even though the State argued for a Stay of Imposition. This means that Ryan Pacyga's client will NOT have a criminal record if he successfully completes probation. Had the State got what they wanted, Ryan's client would have had a permanent criminal record.
