Defendant charged in a federal drug and firearm conspiracy-NOT GUILTY
Christopher was charged in the Western District of Texas, Midland/Odessa Division, in a three count indictment. He was charged with Conspiracy to Distribute and Possess with Intent to Distribute over 5 grams of actual methamphetamine in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 844; Possession of a Firearm (five of them) in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Crime in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924(c); and Maintaining a Drug Premises Within 1000 Feet of a School in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 860. Christopher was facing a maximum of life in prison.
After two days of evidence where the United States Attorneys argued Christopher confessed to selling methamphetamine in Midland and had a picture of himself holding a firearm, Michael L. King argued for Christopher to be acquitted on all counts. After four hours of deliberation, the jury returned NOT GUILTY verdicts on all counts!!!
