State v. R.L.

My client was charged with rape and aggravated child molestation of his daughter that allegedly occurred while she was staying with him for scheduled visitation. The case was made more difficult due to the fact that the client had pleaded guilty to a charge of child molestation years earlier and the jury was going to know that he had been convicted of this prior offense. The mother of the child was deceased, and the child lived with her maternal grandmother. We were able to show that the grandmother was concerned about our client regaining custody of his daughter and that led to the allegations against him. The jury found him “Not Guilty.” He was facing a minimum of 25 years in prison.

State v. K.B.

My client was charged with burglary. The co-defendant, who was around thirty-five years old, was a career criminal with numerous burglary convictions who used my client, who was twenty, to take him to the house that was burglarized and then pick him up after the fact. The co-defendant worked out a plea deal with the District Attorney’s Office and agreed to cooperate and testify against my client. We were able to show the jury that the co-defendant was the “mastermind” in this case and was trying to put all the blame on our client. The jury found our client “Not Guilty” on all counts.

State v. R.B.

My client was charged with DUI. The officer in the case based the charge on the odor of alcohol and the fact that my client had a traffic accident. We were able to show that my client had been with a friend minutes before the accident who could testify to his sobriety. We were also able to show that the accident was most likely due to my client’s long day at work rather than alcohol consumption and that the officer jumped to conclusions in making the arrest. Client was found “Not Guilty” of the DUI.
