Aggravated Assault? I think not!
Nancy aggravated assault felony was dismissed this week. Nancy’s roommate called the police claiming Nancy pulled a gun on her/pistol-whipped her. Even though there were no injuries, the police arrested Nancy and when she bonded out the roommate had stolen her jewelry and broken into her safe with a crowbar, and pawned a bunch of her stuff. We presented our grand jury packet on Wednesday and the DA rejected the case the next day. – DISMISSED
DWI with a CDL
Pedro’s DWI was reduced to Obstruction of a Highway. Pedro is an employee with a CDL so a DWI conviction would have been bad news. – REDUCED
Assault or Self Defense? – DISMISSED
Racing Misdemeanor – DISMISSED
Caleb was charged with a racing case (a misdemeanor). We turned several offers down and set it for trial. Three days before the trial, we agreed to do a short-term pre-trial diversion program. Caleb accepted. In 6 months, the case will be dismissed. Caleb will not have to report or do probation and stay out of trouble for six months. Caleb is very happy. DISMISSED
1st DWI – REDUCED
Eulogio had a DWI 1st over a .15-BAC .172. We were able to get the charge changed to an obstruction of a roadway, 8M deferred adjudication. REDUCED
DWI – BAC High – REDUCED
Tyler BAC .28, DWI 1st w/open container. We had the blood analyzed which showed the blood should not be considered. We were able to get Tyler a deferred adjudication for 8 months and a $200 fine. With Tylers BAC being that high, it could have been a class A with no ability to get a deferred adjudication. REDUCED
Harassment Charges – DISMISSED
Inna’s harassment conviction could have seriously jeopardized her U.S. status and could have subjected her to removal. Chase and our criminal defense team spent time gathering evidence in the case. We gathered evidence showing the alleged “victim” was harassing OUR client. At the pre-trial hearing Chase, after many hours of negotiation the case was dismissed on all four charges. DISMISSED
Family Violence – DISMISSED
Andrew’s assault family violence case was DISMISSED. Judge rushed this case to trial. The client can now avoid an MTR for this new alleged offense. DISMISSED
Wild on NYE – DISMISSED
