Woodberry, a very close friend and alleged crime partner of Hushpupi no longer has fraud charges against him…
According to USA media company Prime Times, an attorney by the name John R. Lausch made sure of it because of lack of sufficient evidence.
“Counsel for the government has spoken with counsel for the defendant and defendant’s counsel has no objection to this motion. Respectfully submitted. Also, the government may not dismiss the prosecution during trial without the defendant’s consent.
A court order issued by Judge Robert W. Gettleman on Tuesday said the government’s motion to dismiss the complaint without prejudice was granted. Without objection, the complaint against defendant Ponle is dismissed without prejudice. Motion presentment hearing set for 7/23/2020 is stricken.
When a case is dismissed with prejudice, it is over and done with, once and for all, and can’t be brought back to court. However, when it is dismissed without prejudice, like in the case of Mr Ponle, the dismissal is temporary as the prosecutor can refile the case within a certain period of time.
The probable causes of dismissal range from unavailability of sufficient evidence, an improper criminal complaint or charging document, to loss of evidence necessary to prove the defendant committed the crime.”
Mr John R. Lausch stated
Hushpupi have also been confirmed released according to information available to the US Federal Beaure of prisons website.
