• June 2016: Felony Tampering With Evidence Dismissed in Colorado County

    Client got in a minor fender bender in Columbus, Colorado County, Texas.  The local sheriff’s illegally detained my client, and waited for the Texas Troopers to show up.  My client admits to having marijuana, yet supposedly tries throwing it away at the same time.  Interestingly, the sheriff’s don’t write an offense report and never turn over their dash cam videos, and the Troopers don’t write an offense report for over a month.  After exposing this pattern if the government tampering with evidence, the felony tampering with evidence case was dismissed and my client took a deferred on possession of marijuana. I really wish we could have tried this one!

  • April 2016: Felony Reduced To Misdemeanor Deferred

    This was a hard-faught case where my client was charged with possession of marijauna after she called the police and the cops illegally, in my opinion, kicked the door in when she was not there. These are the hard ones: where I as an attorney think there is a viable defense both legally and factually, but the client gives up after a year of being screwed around by the State.

  • January 2016: Felon in Possession of a A Firearm Case Dismissed

    Hardin County Sheriff’s Deputies and Texas State Trooper were called out to the hotel where my client was staying by a snitch who claimed my client was smoking marijuana in the room adjoining his.  Cops show up to the hotel and get a master key from the hotel manager.  My client gets upstairs at the same time as the cops.  Cops pat down my client then open the door to several rooms, including my client’s.  The cops found about 2 ounces of pot, a pistol, and several clips.  This, my friends, is what we call an illegal warrantless search.  Cops can’t go into your hotel room without a warrant in most circumstances.  Not only was the case dismissed, but the case wasn’t even presented to the grand jury!

  • January 2016: Super Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Dismissed on Trial Day in Harris County

    DISMISSAL_SNIPI was hired  just before trial to help try a super aggravated sexual of a child case in Harris County where our client voluntarily confessed to his pastors, CPS, and the police to sexually assaulting his two year old niece.  While all of his confessions were due to hallucinations, the worse part of his confession to the police was coerced.  Read my full blog article on this case.  What a great way to start the year!

    Harris County Improper Photography Case Dismissed - December 2015

    Well, getting a dismissal on a felony Improper Photography charge is a pretty good way to end 2015.  I just wish I had gotten the dismissal under better circumstances.   In case you don’t know, Improper Photography is also known as Revenge Porn.  Don’t do it, folks.

  • November 2015: Helped Pick DWI Jury That Returned Not Guilty Verdict

    For the second time in a few months, I helped pick a jury with one of my mentors, Troy McKinney.  This time it was in Harris County, and this time he got a not guilty verdict.  Full disclosure: I only helped pick the jury as I was not available for the rest of the trial.

  • November 2015: Brazoria County Terroristic Threat Deferred

    My big jolly client allegedly pointed a gun in his long term ex girlfriend’s face and told her he’d kill her if she didn’t leave his property.  The district attorney wondered why this wasn’t an aggravated assault.  My answer: not even the cops believed her.

  • November 2015: Brazoria County Possession of Marijuana Case Dismissed

    When the police went to pick up my client on a warrant, they conducted an arguably illegal search of his bag that was not on him for a gun.  The cops opened up a key chain pill holder and found some weed.  This was part of a deferred plea deal, but I was comfortable taking this one to trial.

  • November 2015: Brazoria County Assault Family Violence Case Dismissed

  • October 2015: Harris County Felony Prostitution Case Dismissed

    My client was charged with felony prostitution.  In Texas, if you have been convicted of misdemeanor prostitution three time, the next time you are charged with prostitution, it is a felony.  This was a weak case against my client. No audio, no video, and the indictment was screwed up — meaning a directed verdict of not guilty if the judge followed the law, and a great shot a not guilty verdict from the jury if we reached that far. Unfortunately, the judge threw my client in jail after she failed a drug test just before trial, and then the judge reset the case for two month — evil stuff — forcing my client to plea.  At least we got the felony dismissed and she took a deal on a misdemeanor.  Not bad, but so easily could have been better.  FYI,  DON’T DO DRUGS WHILE ON BOND!

  • October 2015: Great Deal In Harris County Felony Possession of Marijuana Case

    My client was facing five to life before I was hired.  He was busted when the cops lied to his mother — saying that someone called 911 and hung up and they need to do a welfare check — and needed to come into the house.  Unfortunately for client and mom, mom had anxiety, and client was bedwritten after having several major surgeries.  The cops come in and do a bogus search before finding a grow room with  a whole lot of marijuana.  They also found some rifles and guns.  My client was a felon.  I forget what the original offer was, but the prosecutor thought there was 100 pounds of weed — uh no!  That was the weight of the entire plants, and soil too.  My client’s prior criminal lawyer on this case didn’t do a damn thing, and that pisses me off.  Lucky my client hired me just before trial.  He ended up taking 9 months on the marijuana case, which is way better then the minimum of 5 years.  I really hate that he pled, because I felt very confident that I would win a motion to suppress on the totally illegal search.  Damn lying cops.

  • September 2015: Fort Bend County DWI Not Guilty

    I helped my mentor, Troy McKinney, pick a jury in a DWI trial in Fort Bend County.  Troy won a motion to suppress the next morning and get a directed verdict of not guilty.It’s not my verdict, but getting the chance to pick a jury and sit second with one of the best DWI attorneys in the nation is a priceless experience.

  • August 2015: Harris County Trespassing Case Dismissed

    There was a no trespass warning against my client, which made it a crime for her to be on that particular property.  The warning was issued because she had been arrested for prostitution at that address several time.  She also lived in the area.  One day in May she was walking down the street as it began to rain, after it had been flooding for several days.  My client went onto the forbidden property so as not to be arrested.  I used the necessity defense to get the case dismissed.  Again — I don’t care what the prosecutors write on their dismissals — just another sign of their dishonesty.

  • July 2015: Harris County Possession of Controlled Substance Case Dismissed

    My client was walking down the street in Third Ward, Houston, Harris County, Texas pushing his bike.  A cop decides to pull him over and detain him for the Class B Misdemeanor of Obstructing a Highway.  What a BS, race based stop!  The cop then proceeds to pat my client down, despite not having any probable cause to do so! He finds a bag of cocaine.  Well guess what?  You can’t do that!  You need to have a reasonable suspicion — the cop must be able to state and articulate why you think a person may pose a danger to you — and the search may only be for weapons (no manipulating the pocket or putting your hand into the pocket) — or have probable cause to search — which the officer did not.  Illegal Search = Case Dismissed!

    The DA can write whatever she wants on the dismissal form to make her happy. It Was A BAD SEARCH!

My client exercised his right to deny consent, and the cop the brought out a K9. The K9 hit on some weed then found the gun. We demonstrated to the prosecutor that detaining my any longer after he denied consent to search his car was unlawful. Case Dismissed.

  • March 2015: Deadly Conduct Case Dismissed

I tried taking the case to trial, but when I told the prosecutor what the deal is, Case Dismissed.

  • February 2015: Harris County Controlled Substance Plea Deal

    My client screwed himself on this one by telling the magistrate at probable cause/bond court that that the drugs were all his. The state offered him 180 days state jail.  After a few resets I was able to get it down to 60 or 90 days 12.44(a), and his pregnant girlfriend’s case was dismissed.  I should get credit for that too, right?  Lesson learned, don’t admit to anything or try to talk you way out of anything during your first court appearance.
