U.S. v. Ramos-Atondo (9th Cir. - Oct. 11, 2013)

Sometimes, even if you have outstanding attorneys, you're just guilty, guilty, guilty.  So there's very little anyone can do.

Like here.

Defendants were not caught dead to rights.  But they nearly were.  That panga boat full of marijuana on the beach in San Clemente?  That's yours.  Getting two of the participants to flip was the nail in your (figurative) coffin.

Sometimes that's the way the cookie crumbles.
