Supreme Court of California
In the People v. Randall Harris Wood, Mr. Hashim’s client was originally
convicted of transportation of marijuana, for possessing several pounds
of marijuana in the trunk of his car, while driving through San Mateo
County. Mr. Wood was a qualified patient but was nevertheless arrested,
and prosecuted. Mr. Wood was appointed an attorney and later proceeded
to trial, where he was convicted. Mr. Hashim received Mr. Woods case thereafter,
and prepared an appeal, arguing that the jury had been misinstructed by
the judge, who told them that if Mr. Wood had more than the “county
guidelines” allowed, without written permission for more, he should
be convicted. Mr. Hashim lost his first level appeal on this point, in
front of the California Court of Appeals. He thereafter filed a petition
for review with the Californian Supreme Court, who agreed to hear the
case along with two other cases, including the seminal decision in People
v. Kelly, which established that county guidelines authorizing a particular
amount of marijuana to be possessed by a qualified patient, could no longer
be used at trial by the prosecution to undermine a defense under the Compassionate
Use Act. The Supreme Court reversed the ruling of he Court of Appeals,
effectively sending the case back down to the San Mateo Superior Court
for a new trial in light of the Court’s ruling in Kelly. The San
Mateo County District Attorney declined to retry Mr. Wood.

Not guilty verdict after trial on allegations that the client feloniously
aided a gang member in escaping arrest for a crime previously committed.
The prosecution’s gang expert was made to acknowledge the vast array
of gang affiliations and the jury did not accept his opinion that given
general gang culture, our client must have known the principle committed
the earlier crime. The jury found our client not guilty on the one felony count.
