The defendant was charged with Armed Robbery, Theft by Taking Motor Vehicle, Possession of Firearm by Convicted Felon, Possession of Firearm During Crime. These charges originated in 2002 and the case became dormant after being reindicted later in that same year. Sometimes, the best thing an attorney can do for the defendant is wait things out. The defendant was advised to not make his case active. The strategy paid off. After letting the prosecution forget about the case, they finally lost interest and dismissed the case.
