Was this a waste of taxpayer’s resources? While violent Mexican Drug Cartels were setting up shop in cities and rural communities across the nation, why did the FBI set up surveillance on Leonardo Carson for 5 years and why did they not have anymore evidence to produce than the testimony of two admitted drug dealers with something to gain by testifying against Mr. Carson? Did the FBI offer Mr. Carson a “deal” if he gave false testimony against former Alabama Judge Herman Thomas? Is this standard operating procedure in the FBI Mobile, Alabama branch?
Mr. Carson was arrested in March of 2009 and accused of trafficking in cocaine and other drugs using other dealers to distribute the drugs. Carson has maintained his innocence and according to sources, the FBI had little evidence to support their charges. However, his brother Wilbert Carson and another man, Kareem Abdul Cook testified against Leonardo in August and he was convicted largely on their testimony. Family members contend that Leonardo Carson was set up by drug dealers trying to cut a deal with prosecutors. Leonardo’s brother, Wilbert Carson reportedly regrets giving testimony and has tried to commit suicide twice. There are a number of questions remaining about this case as Leonardo waits to appeal his conviction.
I hope that we can shed some insight into this case as we hear about these events from Leonardo’s wife, Mrs. Tonya Carson.
