PCS WITH INTENT TO DELIVER – 300 Gms COCAINE AND CRACK COCAINE
Case No. 933323 – Drexel P.
JURY TRIAL VERDICT: NOT GUILTY
Our client was accused of possession of a mobile crack lab and 300 grams of cocaine and crack cocaine in the trunk of a parked car, not his, but to which he had the keys and in which were found his personal belongings – briefcase, etc. Our client had a prior drug record. After careful preparation by Mr. Haggard, he testified along with his family, witnesses, and expert witness. The police made several errors in the handling of the case, which Mr. Haggard exploited at trial. Mr. Haggard used his years of trial experience to pick a good jury for this case and proceeded to a skillful handling of the entire trial, especially his cross-examination of police and prosecution witnesses, capped by a compelling final argument.
You made me a believer in your slogan ‘I’ll Fight For You’. Most attorneys tell you what they will do for you. Mr. Haggard, you showed my family and me what you could do. There’s only one true word to describe you, Mr.Haggard. That word is Awesome !!!

POSS W/ INTENT TO DELIVER CS 28 – 200 GRMS DIHYDROCODEINONE
ENHANCED DUE TO TWO PRIOR PCS CONVICTIONS – [TDC]
RANGE OF PUNISHMENT 25 YRS TO LIFE
Case No. 1199040 – Lee C.
DISMISSED AT JURY TRIAL
Lee was accused of obtaining prescribed medication [Dihydrocodeinone] and attempting to resell it. The man to whom he was allegedly attempting to resell it to was arrested and pleaded guilty. We fought this case long and hard including a thorough preparation for trial. After going over our defenses with a fine-toothed comb, we chose certain problematic issues with the alleged evidence and the arrest to exploit and obtained a Dismissal on the day of Trial. As we went through the file papers in closing it out, we came across this interesting note passed between Mr. Haggard and Lee [incarcerated on a zero bond]. “Lee, the DA has offered 5 years TDC. What do you want to do? Reply: I want: ________ Lee wrote “Nothing” on the reply line. Nothing was exactly what he got. Family and friends were overjoyed at not losing him for at least 25 years and all weighed in with comments:
Mr. Haggard was patient and very professional.
“You did a wonderful job…he was looking to serve 25 years to life; we are so grateful; may God continue to bless you.”
“I first thank God, then the lawyer – 25 years to life is a long time..”
“Mr. Haggard was very thorough and patient and pressed on until the end when he got the case dismissed.”
“Mr. Haggard did a wonderful job and now my husband is a free man.”
