Subpar and over rated.
Matthew Gorney did zero research on appellate case law on intent for a misdemeanor. His motion to dismiss completely missed on subject matter and Chief Judge David Ricke even noted in his opinion that the Wilbanks v. State case dealt with the necessity of sufficient factual information presented to a magistrate to make an independent finding of probable cause before a warrant is issued. Judge David Ricke stated I was arrested on probable cause a short time later after the alleged incident and not pursuant to a formal arrest warrant per K.S.A. 22-2402. Mr. Gorney was emphatic about having a jury trial and stated I would be found guilty by a bench trial. I decided to retain more qualified counsel and I was acquitted before a bench trial where a jury trial I would have been found guilty because, Judge David Ricke is more in tune with the relevant case law and intricacies and elements involved in the structure of a given statute. Mr. Gorney nickel and dimed me for over $6000.00 and in the end the State completely failed to meet their burden of proof and the arrest and complaint was baseless.
