Felony VOP's Dismissed in Two Weeks
Client was charged with a felony out of Pinellas County while he was on probation in both Sarasota County and Charlotte County. As a result of picking up the Pinellas felony, he violated probation in both Sarasota and Charlotte Counties. We fought, and beat, the Pinellas County new charge violation. We were then able to get both VOPs dismissed, and the client out of jail, within two weeks.
Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling Charges Dropped.
Client was charged with Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling after he was allegedly seen in the garage of a home rifling through belongings. The State Attorney's Office was seeking a lengthy prison sentence due to the seriousness of the offense and the defendant's bad criminal history. We decided that the best course was to fight the charges and subpoena witnesses for depositions (depositions provide an opportunity for the defense attorney to question the state's witnesses, under oath). After depositions, the prosecutor agreed to drop the charges.
Multiple Drug Charges Dropped.
Client was charged with multiple counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance after a traffic stop allegedly revealed controlled substances within a car. We filed a motion to suppress the narcotics found. In the motion to suppress, we challenged the basis for the stop and search of the car and the basis for the detainment and search of the defendant. The prosecutor dropped all charges at the hearing for the motion suppress, before the hearing actually took place.
