Client Claims Ex Left Colonazepam Pills in Drawer, Gets Not Guilty Verdict

CHARGE

Possession of Colonazepam

RESULT

Not Guilty Verdict

In San Mateo County my client was charged with possession of Clonazepam (Health and Safety Code section 11375(b), a misdemeanor). My client was on probation with search and seizure as a condition of probation. Two detectives that know my client go to his home to search his room. Inside of his room is a dresser. Inside the top dresser drawer are four pills of Clonazepam. When the detectives discovered the pills they questioned my client about them. My client told them that he didn't have a prescription for them and that an “unknown friend” left them in the drawer. Well, my client wanted a trial because he didn't want a jail sentence. At trial, my client testified that he didn't know the pills were in his drawer and that his ex-girlfriend must have left them there. Outcome? You guessed it. Not guilty!
