A man in his 30s from Bradenton, Florida was charged with 2nd-degree felony sale of cocaine, a serious charge carrying a maximum of 15 years incarceration. The man, a construction worker in the area, countered this charge with the legal representation of experienced Sarasota criminal defense attorney Erika Valcarcel.
The man had no prior criminal charges on his record to this point. Attorney Erika Valcarcel used this to negotiate his way into drug court, a first offender’s program. Upon successful completion of this program, he is expungement eligible. The man is currently working towards the expungement of his sale of cocaine charge.
