Prosecution Dismisses Drug-Sales Case Mid Trial. Compton Courthouse. The client had 16 years of exposure at 80%, and the offer prior to trial was 2 years at 50%. Four days into the trial, the last witness was a LAPD Police Officer who acknowledged making several false representations in the arrest report and the search warrant affidavit. The Prosecution admirably chose to dismiss the case mid-trial based on the lack of the officer's credibility.
