Oklahoma v. SS, Beckham County, CF-2003-260
Defendant charged with trafficking 175 grams of crystal methamphetamine found in the rental car she was driving from California to Ohio. The stop, search and conversation between SS and her companion were recorded by the trooper-cam. The companion, a three time convicted felon, testified at trial that SS helped him package the methamphetamine and that she knew that she was transporting it. Mr. Pierce's masterful cross-examination exposed the companions dubious character and complete unreliability as a witness. SS then testified that she had no knowledge of the drugs in the car and the jury found her not guilty.
