My client was charged with Driving While Intoxicated after she allegedly failed Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and a breath machine with a reading of .15.
People v. Cadell
Felony case dismissed. Disposed of with a violation.
Client was charged with a felony (burglary) had another attorney for two years. He got her an offer, to plea to the felony but kept adjourning it hoping the Government would not require jail time.
She came to my office asking for a better disposition since she did not feel comfortable with the attorney she had.
Our firm took the case and in two months I was able to get the case reduced to a violation (not a crime) with a small fine. Therefore, we were not only able to save her from jail time and avoid a felony conviction but also to avoid a criminal convictioin altogether.
People v. Isley
Aquitted of all charges after trial.
Client charged with Resisting Arrest, Obstructing Governmental Administration and Felony Assault of a police officer. He fired his previous attorney and hired my office. He admitted that he resisted by biting a police officer causing a serious bite mark to the officer's arm. The issue in the case was whether the police were within their authority to enter his home. With his previous attorney at a hearing the judge decided that the police were within their legal authority to enter the home. However, at trial the jury was asked to decide the same question. Mr. Isley hired Raiser & Kenniff for the trial.
