Case Involving Not Sufficient Evidence of Attempted Trafficking

In Williams v. State, 592 So. 2d 737 (Fla. 1st DCA 1992), the First District overturned the conviction of a similarly charged defendant where the only evidence of attempted trafficking was the defendant's statement agreeing to participate in a "big deal." See 592 So. 2d at 739. The First District found that, although other testimony "indicated that appellant's co-defendant was told the buyer wished to purchase an ounce or more of cocaine, no specific amounts were discussed on the two occasions when appellant was present, nor did appellant agree to furnish a specific amount of cocaine."
