If You Have Been Charged with Conspiracy to Commit a Drug Crime in Palm Beach County, Florida, You May Have a Defense

 

           In the case of Betsy Dieujuste versus the State of Florida, Ms. Dieujuste was convicted of the crime of conspiracy to traffic in oxycodone.  She appealed and won her case for the following reasons:

 

          1.  A person is not guilty of conspiracy to commit a drug crime simply because she happens to be present at the scene of a crime.

 

          2.  A person is not guilty of conspiracy to commit a drug crime merely because she has knowledge that a crime is being committed.

 

          3.  A person is not guilty of conspiracy to commit a drug crime if there is no evidence that she was involved in any prearrangements with others who did actually participate in a conspiracy.

 

          In Ms. Dieujuste's case, the evidence presented at her trial showed only that:

 

          1.  She was sitting in the back seat of her car when a drug deal occurred.

 

          2.  She had oxycodone pills contained in a prescription bottle that had her name on it.

 

          3.  She had $400 that had been used in a drug deal.

 

          The appellate court ruled that this was not enough evidence for Ms. Dieujuste to be found guilty of conspiracy to traffic in oxycodone.
