Mr. Pujol was charged along with 21 other co-defendants with conspiring to distribute crack cocaine. All of the co-defendants were sentenced to lengthy prison sentences. Mr. Seitles persuasively argued that the crack guidelines were too severe, that his client was a first-time non-violent offender who supported his wife and disabled child, and that he remained gainfully employed before and after his arrest.

The Judge sentenced Mr. Pujol to five years probation.
