Tampa Defense Attorney - Rare Perjury Prosecution

Perjury, Perjury By False Statement
Tampa Defense Attorney notes a recent media report of a very rare prosecution and prison sentence for a Florida perjury case. The prosecution was based on a defendant's statements in a case where he was acquitted of a huge 2006 trafficking in cocaine charge where he faced 30 years in prison.

The testimony in the 2006 revolved around a false alibi that put the defendant in another state at the time of the drug charges he originally faced. The prosecutor became a star witness and helped establish that the alibi was false.
