MALICIOUS WOUNDING AND FELONY DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY DROPPED

An innocent night out on the town turned into a nightmare after our client was charged with throwing a bottle at his ex-girlfriend. After closely examining surveillance footage, we were convinced that our client was innocent and came to court prepared to fight. After discussing the case with the prosecution, we were thrilled when both felony charges were dropped.

FELONY PRELIMINARY HEARING

NOT GUILTY MURDER MALICIOUS WOUNDING AND BREAKING AND ENTERING AFTER JURY TRIAL

Our client was charged with breaking into his ex-girlfriend's house and beating her to the point where she required hospitalization. We took the case to a jury trial. We subpoenaed her medical records and demonstrated that her injuries were completely inconsistent with the attack she described. The jury found our client not guilty and he walked away a free man.

FELONY JURY TRIAL

4 COUNTS MALICIOUS WOUNDING, 4 COUNTS USE OF A FIREARM ALL DISMISSED AFTER JURY TRIAL

Our client was accused of a drive by shooting in which four different people were shot and seriously injured.  We took the case to a jury trial.  We argued that the only witness who identified our client had a history of bad blood with our client's family and could not be trusted. After hearing all the evidence, the jury could not reach a verdict and a mistrial was declared.  The prosecution dropped all charges before a second scheduled trial and our client was released.

FELONY JURY TRIAL

MALICIOUS WOUNDING CHARGE DROPPED PRIOR TO SCHEDULED TRIAL

Our client was a former police officer whose ex-girlfriend accused him of deliberately throwing boiling water on her. We were able to demonstrate through medical records that she was highly intoxicated and that the injuries she suffered were likely the result of her own drunken negligence.  Multiple witnesses confirmed that our client was sober, calm, and cooperative.  We had to refuse multiple plea offers and the prosecution eventually conceded and dropped all charges.

FELONY BENCH TRIAL

ALL CHARGED DROPPED PRIOR TO TRIAL

TWO COUNTS MALICIOUS WOUNDING, ASSAULT AND BATTERY ALL DROPPED PRIOR TO JURY TRIAL

Our client was charged with stabbing two people and assaulting a third person during an altercation outside an oceanfront bar.  We were confident that we could prove that our client acted in self-defense and scheduled the case for a jury trial.  The prosecution offered multiple plea offers but we stood firm.  Before the scheduled trial date, the prosecution dropped all of the charges and our client avoided felonies and serious jail time.

FELONY BENCH TRIAL

MALICIOUS WOUNDING REDUCED TO MISDEMEANOR ASSAULT WITH NO JAIL TIME

Our client was charged after his roommate claimed that he broke a glass bottle over his head and severely cut him. We interviewed numerous witnesses who confirmed the complaining witness's history of drunken and aggressive behavior. Our client refused to take any deal that would include a felony or jail time. We were prepared to present a self defense case at trial, but the prosecution eventually made an offer that was too good to refuse.
