Bootlegging Tax Evasion Charges Dismissed

After 18 months of investigation, the State Attorneys Office agreed to dismiss 70 counts of bootlegging and tax evasion charges against the CEO of a liquor distribution company in Jacksonville, Florida. Mitch Stone was hired by C.J. Eiras to defend against the liquor related charges after he was arrested on a warrant and jailed under a 2.25 Million dollar bond. After securing his release Stone went to work analyzing the evidence and researching the law and issues pertaining to the case. Numerous meetings were conducted with the Florida Department of Alcohol Beverage and Tobacco agents and the Assistant State Attorney assigned to prosecute the case. Stone pointed out the physical evidence and factual information supported the defense that no law violation had been committed by Eiras or anyone. In fact, the reason for the suspicion stemmed from over 60 drums of liquor that had been stored for years at the Liquor Group's licensed and bonded warehouse.
