The Asheville Citizen-Times
The largest cocaine seizure in Buncombe County history. Corey represented the driver of an 18-wheeler that was stopped at a weigh station. After investigation, officers found 28 kilograms in a hidden compartment in the cabin of the truck. The jury found Corey’s client Guilty after a week-long trial. On appeal, however, the Court found the conviction improper and overturned the jury’s findings, saying the driver had to have some actual knowledge of contraband within the vehicle.
