In S. v. W.R., the defendant was charged with possessing for distribution almost half a kilogram of cocaine in Houston, Texas. Although he had no felony record, the defendant was out on bond for a murder case in Dallas at the time of his drug arrest. The district attorney’s initial settlement offer was for eight years in state prison. After Attorney Dudley successfully prosecuted a search and seizure motion that led to the suppression of an important part of the case against his client, the case was resolved for an actual sentence of only six months.
