Federal Criminal Attorney, Steven Brill, Successfully Argued To Federal District Judge of the Eastern DIstrict of New York
The client was U.S. Citizen from Nigeria who was arrested by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for Conspiracy to Import and Distribute approximately 500 grams of Heroin. The DEA conducted surveillance and wiretaps in order to make the arrest. Federal Criminal Attorney, Steven Brill, from Sullivan & Brill, argued to the Justice from Federal District Court of the Eastern District of New York, that given client's lack of criminal history and other familial mitigation factors, a sentence of time-served was warranted. The Judge agreed and the client was released on the same day he was sentenced.
