As the first step in a substantial, high-publicity effort to prosecute marijuana traffickers operating out of California, federal authorities recently indicted an individual charged with organizing and managing the distribution of thousands of pounds of marijuana from California and Arizona to other states over the course of several years.
Attorney David M. Dudley’s client was accused by those authorities of laundering the illegal proceeds received by that individual as a consequence of the alleged multi-state marijuana distribution scheme.
At her initial appearance and detention hearing in U.S. v. S.J., Mr. Dudley convinced the United States Magistrate Judge to release his client immediately on an unsecured bond, requiring only her signature and that of a family member as a pre-condition for her release. Once again, as occurs in the majority of Mr. Dudley’s federal cases, his client was released on bond (this time bond with no secured financial commitment) pending trial.
