My client let someone talk him into setting fire to a car (that was registered to his father-in-law!) that was more trouble than it was worth. The car exploded into flames, and he was charged with felony arson. He agreed to continue to make the payments on the car, so with his father-in-law's help, I was able to convince the DA to reduce his case to a misdemeanor with deferred probation.
Not Guilty on DWI with .17 Breath Test
DUI and DWI
Sep 19, 2012
My client was charged with DWI and (unfortunately) agreed to take a breath test, blowing a .17. With nothing to lose, I set the case for trial. After three years and 8 resets, we finally got our day in court. The officer failed to appear at trial for the fourth time, and the judge forced the DA to go forward without him. Without any evidence that my client even operated a motor vehicle, she had no choice but to find my client Not Guilty.
Aggravated Assault Dismissed
Sep 11, 2012
My client was accused of stabbing her boyfriend. She claimed she acted in self-defense (even though he was cut in the back). Before the case went to trial, the "victim" was arrested for assaulting another woman. The DA finally agreed to dismiss her case.
