Drug Conspiracy/Abuse of Trust
Client was 20 year veteran NYPD detective who was charged with conspiring to rob drug dealers while on duty. Client was facing a mandatory minimum of 20 years because the government alleged that client's actions were part of a continuous criminal conspiracy. Client engaged in a cooperation agreement with the government which led to other arrests and prosecutions. After intense negotiations with the government, Sullivan & Brill, LLP was able to convince the government to recommend that the court greatly reduce client's sentence. Sullivan & Brill, LLP persuaded the court to sentence client well below the jail time he was originally facing.
