DENTIST FOUND NOT GUILTY OF DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
A dentist was stopped for failure to signal a turn at an intersection, at 9:00PM one night. He had just left his friend's house, where he visited for approximately 90 minutes, over which time he had consumed one and a half beers. Because the officer who stopped him smelled alcohol on his breath and because the client was so nervous while being asked to walk heel-to-toe on the side of the road at night, he was arrested for, and charged with, Operating Under the Influence.
Verdict: Finding of Not Guilty. Extensive cross-examination proved no evidence of alcohol-related impairment at time of arrest.
COLLEGE STUDENT CHARGED WITH RAPE OF FEMALE STUDENT
A college senior was accused of rape of a female classmate, who said she was raped by the client. Pre-trial investigation and extensive cross-examination at trial proved that the sex had been consensual, and that the accuser fabricated the story to save face with her very religious parents and family, who had learned of her sexual involvement with the client.
Verdict: Finding of Not Guilty
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT ARRESTED FOR POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA
A high school junior was charged with possession of 1 oz. of marijuana, a Class D prohibited substance.

SALES EXECUTIVE CHARGED WITH SPEEDING AND AVOIDING ARREST
A senior sales executive with a major corporation was stopped and charged with speeding, and failure to stop for a police officer. Due to two prior speeding tickets he received and had not challenged, but instead paid fines for without contesting the citations, the client stood to lose his drivers' license and risk his employment.
Verdict: Finding of Not guilty
HUSBAND CHARGED WITH ASSAULT AND BATTERY ON WIFE
A husband (the client) and his wife were in the process of divorcing, and became engaged in a heated argument one night. When trying to leave the house, the wife blocked the client's exit at the front door. The client brushed his wife aside so he could exit the house. The wife later filed a criminal complaint with the local Police Department, alleging Assault and Battery by the client. While the client did not assault or batter the wife, if convicted he could have lost custody and/or visitation rights to his three children, as well as suffered a criminal record.
Verdict: Not Guilty
WOMAN CHARGED WITH SELLING DRUGS WITHIN 1000 FEET OF A SCHOOL; FACED MANDATORY MINIMUM JAIL SENTENCE IF CONVICTED.
An unemployed high-school drop-out was charged with selling a small amount of cocaine, within 1000 feet of a public school. The client had sold the cocaine to an undercover police officer. Because of a state law that requires judges to issue a mandatory minimum sentence of at least 2 years in jail if convicted of selling illegal drugs within 1000 feet of a school, the client faced significant jail time if convicted. (The stated purpose of this law is to prevent drug dealers from selling to schoolchildren.) Pre-Trial investigation and extensive cross-examination of arresting police officers at trial showed that the client was lured to the site of arrest near the school by police officers looking to specifically "bust" someone on this statute, and that the defendant was essentially entrapped.
Verdict: Not Guilty
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT CHARGED WITH CHILD RAPE.
The client was a 16-year-old male high school student, charged with the rape of a minor female under 16. The alleged victim and the client were classmates at the school they attended, had dated, and considered themselves as "going steady." The alleged victim’s parents had learned that the client had engaged in sex with the alleged victim, and brought charges. While the alleged victim reported to police investigators that she consented to sex with the client, such consent is ineffective due to the alleged victim's age, and a charge of statutory rape of a child was formally brought forward. If convicted of the charge, the client faced the possibility of being sentenced to a term in state prison, and would later be required to register as a sex offender upon his release.
Verdict: Not Guilty
WOMAN CHARGED WITH SHOPLIFTING FROM STORE.
A 35-year-old woman was arrested for shoplifting three shirts from a department store. Client was suffering from a drinking problem at this point in her life, and was dealing with a number of emotional issues. Client faced prospect of a conviction and resulting criminal record.
Result: Negotiated plea with prosecutor to place client on probation for six months, with agreement that all charges to be dropped after this period; no resulting conviction or record for client.
