3rd degree felony
Client arrested after attempting to board airplane with suitcase full of kitchen knives in his carry on luggage that client had received as a gift. Since client was a foreign national, the incident received media attention. Our investigation resulted in statements from several sources, both locally and overseas, that he was neither a violent person or a terrorist. We submitted a packet of this information to the grand jury, and the grand jury chose to “no bill” or to not pursue the criminal charges.
