Who says marijuana is not a violent drug?
Los Angeles Criminal Lawyer represents someone charged with a drug crime, he usually has a specific type of situation on his hands. He is either defending a client who is facing a possession charge, a trafficking charge or some other type of felony or misdemeanor. However, when a violent crime is involved in a drug crime, that makes the job of the Defense Attorney that much more difficult. For example, there was a recent shooting at a medical marijuana clinic in Echo Park that has led to a difficult investigation.
This week, a second man pleaded not guilty to murder charges stemming from a fatal shooting at this marijuana clinic. Raymond Lemone Easter, who has actually been featured on the Fox Broadcasting series "America's Most Wanted" was arrested in Van Nuys and charged with the shooting murder of Matthew Butcher. He is also charged with the attempted murder of the security guard at the medicial marijuana clinic who was wounded during the shooting. Another defendant was also arrested and pleaded not guilty.
Easter remains jailed without bail and there has been no comment yet from a Attorney. Two other suspects are still being sought in the case and a hearing is set for November 18 to determine whether there is enough evidence to require the two men in custody to stand trial.
