Dougherty drugs case dismissed after we refused to plea

The Defendant was arrested for various possession of drugs with intent to distribute charges after she caught a ride with someone who had drugs in his car. We began preparing the case for trial and refused to enter a plea. Eventually, the driver pled and admitted the drugs were his. The state chose not to prosecute any further and dismissed the case.

Dougherty drugs case dismissed after we objected to the case being dead-docketed

The Defendant was arrested for possessing various drugs with intent to distribute. We began preparing the case for trial and refused to enter a plea. We felt we had a good chance of winning at trial. When the DA tried to dead-docket the case, a procedure we oppose, we filed an objection to the attempt. At a hearing, we prevented the case from being placed on the dead docket, which forced the DA to either take the case to trial or dismiss it. Eventually, the DA dismissed the case.

Dougherty Drugs case dismissed after we showed an equal access defense

A group of men were traveling in a car. The car was pulled over and drugs were found. All of the occupants were arrested. Although several plea offers were made, we declined to accept them and insisted on a trial. Because the drugs were specifically found in relation to one of the other occupants, we believed we would win at trial since the state could not show the Defendant was even aware of the existence of the drugs. After several years, the state finally agreed and dismissed the case.

Harris Aggravated Assault case dismissed after we refused to plea

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.
