Hi, my husband is currently awaiting a trial for a case in which he was set up by an undercover police officer.
It all started last May when my husband was in a local mall and a man approached him and asked him if he would like to buy a large amount of cocaine and marijuana. My husband told him that he does not do that, but may know someone who does. The man and my husband exchanged numbers and went their seperate ways.
Over the next three weeks the man begin harrassing my husband everyday about finding someone to purchase his drugs. My husband finally gave in and set up a meeting between himself, the man, and two of my husband's friends.
The meeting was scheduled to take place in an empty parking lot. When my husband and his friends pulled up, the man was waiting for them in his truck. One of my husband's friends got out of the car and approached the man's truck. The man showed his friend the bricks of cocaine and marijuana and asked if they had the money. My husband's friend verified that they did not have all of the money, but wanted to move the meeting to a different location. While driving off a team of police officers swarmed down on my husband's car and arrested all three of them. Needless to say, the man was an undercover cop and he had been wearing a camera in his glasses the entire time.
My husband and his friends were charged with trafficking marijuana, trafficking cocaine, and theft by recieving. We had to ask several people for money as well as post property to make his $76,000 bond. I am at my wits end with this case and am asking if there is anyone out there who has any suggestions on how to beat this case. My husband and I do not have a lot of money so he has a public defender who never has any time to discuss the case. I am so frustrated because this undercover cop approached my husband and harrased him and now his life is messed up because of it. He can't even get a job because everytime he does a background check this comes up (he hasn't even been convicted yet). I am also upset because after reviewing the tape that they sent us, I could see that they never made a transaction. Please help me if you have any suggestions.What is the name of your state?
