Verdict in Carmichael Case: Guilty

A Montgomery jury has found Leon Carmichael guilty on both drug trafficking and money laundering charges.

Co-defendant Freddie Williams was found guilty of one count of drug trafficking.

The two were arrested in November of 2003.

The jury will have to begin deliberating forfeiture proceedings.  The federal government is expected to take possession of Carmichael's properties including the Carmichael Center, Club Unique and other properties.
