Partial Reversal of Federal Drug Conviction by Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals

Partial reversal of federal drug conviction which will reduce client's sentence by 75 years. Client prosecuted in federal court for drug conspiracy with weapon allegations. Client refused plea, was convicted of 21 counts, and received 150-year sentence. On appeal to Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, argued insufficient evidence for all convictions. Fifth Circuit rejected most arguments, but found evidence of three gun counts insufficient and remanded for resentencing, which lowered client's sentence by 75 years. Pyrrhic victory for client, however, who will still serve most or all of his life in prison.
