Robbery, Battery (hold for extradition on out of state probation warrant)

Charges dropped/ Extradition hold lifted - 12/28/2016

The alleged victim claimed to be a paid prostitute who was paid $200 for intercourse. She claimed that the client became frustrated and “did not seem to be completely satisfied” and wanted more from her. She alleged that the client then threw her out of the apartment using physical force, but kept her purse, which contained $400 and an iPhone. Client was arrested for Robbery and Battery. Further complicating matters, the client was on probation/parole in another State.

Open Carry of a Firearm, Concealed Carry of a Firearm, Battery, Aggravated Assault with a Firearm

All charges Dropped - 12/21/2016

While on vacation in Orlando, 2 male patrons accosted our Client’s wife while they were in sports bar/restaurant on International Drive. Our client defended her. Ultimately, police were called and the 2 patrons somehow convinced police that our Client was the one who attacked them and, in so doing, brandished a firearm, placing them in fear for their lives. After Longwell Lawyers conducted a thorough pre-charging investigation, prosecutors were convinced that our Client was actually defending his wife and not the instigator in a drunken bar fight. Nevertheless, prosecutors charged our Client with “Open Carry of a Firearm.” Undaunted, Longwell Lawyers implemented its trial oriented strategy by getting statements from law enforcement that directly contradicted the 2 patrons’ account of what happened. Once prosecutors were shown that Law Enforcement’s testimony would directly contradict the 2 patrons’ testimony, they dropped all charges on the eve of trial.

Client was a passenger in a car, along with several other people, that was stopped in a parking garage. Law Enforcement found a “blunt” in the car.

Possession of Marijuana

No Charges Filed - 11/30/2016

While client was at work, law enforcement executed a dubiously obtained search warrant on his home. Inside the residence, in a common, jointly occupied area, Law Enforcement found marijuana. Although law enforcement wanted our Client to “voluntarily” discuss the case with them, pursuant to our advice, the Client wisely exercised his constitutional right to remain silent. He was never arrested and, after some negotiations with the prosecution, charges were never filed.

Felony Child Abuse

Dismissed - 11/17/2016

Client’s own children accused him of corporal punishment that crossed a line. After proving that the children’s injuries could not have been caused the way that police believed they happened, the Prosecution’s case started to crack. Using a neighbor’s testimony to prove that additional elements of the children’s story were fabricated, further undermined the accusations’ validity. Despite these developments, the prosecution continued to question how the children’s independent stories could be so similar to each other if it was all made up. Finally, Longwell Lawyers used DCF’s child interview procedures against them. When the Defense proved that DCF did not follow their own anti-cross-contamination child-interview procedures, all doubt was removed. Longwell Lawyers proved that the allegations were false, the children recanted their testimony, and the case was dismissed.

Felony Child Abuse

Case Dismissed - 11/17/2016

Charge: Felony Child Abuse

Client’s own children accused him of physical abuse. After proving that the children’s injuries could not have been caused the way that the children and police initially alleged, the Prosecution’s case started to crack. Using a neighbor’s testimony to prove that additional elements of the children’s story were fabricated, it became clear that the validity of the accusations was not credible. Despite these developments, the prosecution continued to push the case. Longwell Lawyers diligently and thoroughly prepared for trial, and using DCF’s child interview procedures against them, we demonstrated how flawed the investigation and resulting allegations really were. When the Defense proved that DCF did not follow their own anti-cross-contamination child-interview procedures, all doubt was removed. Longwell Lawyers proved that the allegations were false, the children recanted their testimony, and the case was dismissed without even the need for a trial.
