Oakland Criminal Lawyer Ernesto Castillo Gets Large Drug Case Dismissed

Recently, Oakland criminal lawyer Ernesto Castillo obtained a dismissal in federal court for a client who was wrongfully charged with a drug case involving multiple kilos of narcotics and which was part of a four year federal investigation called the Honduran Highway. The investigation involved multiple law enforcement agencies, wiretaps, federal surveillance and the charges carried the possibility of a life sentence.

While most drug cases involve legal issues dealing with wiretaps, informants, and illegal search and seizures, this case was different - Mr. Castillo's client was mistakenly identified by law enforcement officers as being part of an Oakland drug organization. Mr. Castillo was able to prove through the use of witness interviews, phone records, employment records and GPS tracking devices that law enforcement made several mistakes in their lengthy investigation including wrongfully identifying his client as a member of this narcotic organization. The defense investigation in fact resulted in proving that law enforcement agencies had misidentified Mr. Castillo's client for someone else. The lengthy fight to prove Mr. Castillo's client's innocence led to all charges being dismissed.
