Travis Henry using victim defense

Posted by Chris Brown on July 7, 2009 – 6:19 pm

According to the Denver Post, attorneys for Travis Henry in his federal drug trafficking case are taking an interesting position in an effort to get him a lighter sentence.

They’re claiming Henry was taken advantage of by his co-defendants, as Henry was simply the man behind the money needed to fund the operation. They’re claiming he was duped.

Now I’m not going to be one to dispute that he was duped, but you’ve got to believe the word “coke” or some synonym of it was used at some point in the conversation when Henry’s co-defendants asked him for a sizable sum of money.

Once you hear “coke” I’d like to think you’d run the other way. But that obviously didn’t happen with Henry.

Personally I think it’s a long shot, but you can’t blame the attorneys for trying. That’s their job. But the feds are not known for going light on sentencing especially when drugs are involved.
