MISTRIAL IN HIGH PROFILE FELONY INDECENCY WITH A CHILD CASE I was hired about six months ago to represent a young medical doctor who was subpoenaed to testify as a witness at the grand jury.  My client did not know whether she was the subject of the grand jury, a.k.a. the potential defendant.  She has…

UNLAWFUL CARRYING OF A WEAPON CASE DISMISSED This is late.  Almost too late.  Just like the dismissal in this case.  There will be more on how I got the dismissal below, but this was one of those cases where I was confident in getting a not guilty verdict, so I didn’t give anything away to the prosecutor….

NECESSITY DEFENSE Trespassing Case Dismissed With Use Of Necessity Defense I recently won a dismissal in a trespassing case using the necessity defense.  The state might not have admitted it on the dismissal form, but these things happen.  My client was charged with trespassing for being on a property where she was not supposed to…
