The Defendant was arrested for interfering with Child Custody. We began preparing the case for trial and refused to enter a plea. Eventually, the state chose not to prosecute any further and dismissed the case.
The Defendant was arrested and accused of having beaten his estranged wife. We collected sufficient evidence to show that she was unworthy of belief and that she was making the story up to benefit her in the divorce case. After some time passed, the victim passed away from an illness. We researched the law to prove that the state could not proceed without her and the state dismissed the case.
The Defendant was arrested and accused of having beaten an alleged rival gang member and robbed him at gunpoint. We prepared the case for trial and refused to accept any plea offers. After some time passed, the state was unable to located the victim and dismissed the case.
The Defendant was arrested and accused of having injured her father. The case was brought in Magistrate Court. We filed a demand to transfer the case to Superior Court where we could have a jury decide what happened. The case got lost in the transfer and the statute of limitations expired to formally charge the Defendant so the State dismissed the case.
The Defendant was involved in an ongoing family feud over land rights. When he engaged in some target practice on his property, opposing family members called the police and claimed he was shooting in their direction. He was arrested for reckless conduct. We pointed out to the state that the video alleged to show the crime in fact showed nothing. In addition, we lined up various witnesses to testify at trial and insisted on a trial rather than any type of plea. The state dismissed the case.
The Defendant was arrested and accused of having drugs. We argued that the drugs belonged to the co-defendant and demanded a trial to prove it. The co-defendant finally pled and admitted they were his drugs, so the state dismissed the case against our client.
The Defendant was arrested after the police stopped him at a roadblock. The police claimed they could smell the odor of marijuana and arrested him for DUI drugs. During the search, they found marijuana on the Defendant and arrested him for that as well. At trial, the state called its first witness who could not remember the case off the top of his head so he read from the report. We objected and prevented him from reading the report. The state then tried to tender the dash cam video, but the officer was not the one that recorded the video on to a DVD and had not viewed it so we again objected and prevented them from being able to play the video. With no officer testimony and no evidence to explain what happened, the state decided to dismiss the case in the middle of trial.
The Defendant was arrested after getting into a fight. Our investigation made us confident we could win at trial since the Defendant was merely defending herself against an attack by the other girl. Therefore, we filed a Demand for Speedy Trial insisting on a quick trial to exonerate the Defendant. The state failed to bring the case to trial in a timely manner, so we filed a Motion to Dismiss which was granted by the court.
The Defendant was charged along with two other individuals with robbing a man at gunpoint outside of a local bank. One defendant had already gone to trial and was convicted. At this trial, the victim, suddenly and unexpectedly, for the first time identified the Defendant as the one who took the money at gunpoint. He stated the other two were never left the getaway car. We countered with an alibi witness who placed the Defendant at his house at the time of the robbery. We also presented a rebuttal witness to prove the victim lied when he claimed he did not know the Defendant. At the conclusion of the trial, it only took the jury about 15 minutes to find the Defendant Not Guilty!
The police saw the Defendant who had an active warrant and gave chase after he ran on foot. After they caught the Defendant, they retraced his steps and found a bag of marijuana near where he had been. No officer saw him touch the marijuana nor make any movements which would indicate he was hiding marijuana. He was just near where it was found. The Defendant was arrested and charged with possessing the drugs with the intent to distribute them. At trial, we pointed out all the discrepancies between the officer’s statements and said there was no evidence he possessed the drugs. The entire case rested on the state wanting the jury to assume the drugs were his and assumptions are not enough. The jury agreed and acquitted him after deliberating for less than 20 minutes.
