Staging a Motor Vehicle Crash (Insurance Fraud), Scheme to Defraud

All Charges Dropped at Trial - 8/17/2017

In 2015 several individuals planned, staged, and executed an intentional car crash and received medical treatment for fraudulent injuries. One of this scheme’s participants had an ax to grind with our client and duped law enforcement into believing that our client was involved in planning this intentional crash. Despite numerous inconsistent statements from the scheme’s admitted participants, the government would not drop the case against our Client. Finally, after picking a jury and delivering a hard hitting opening statement, the prosecution’s house of cards began to tumble. After a hard hitting cross examination, and halfway through the testimony of the Government’s star witness, the prosecution gave in and dropped the case. Because a jury was sworn, jeopardy attached, and our client can never be charged for the false allegations again.

Violation of Probation, 4 Counts of Forgery, 3 Counts of Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card, Grand Theft, Absconding

5 Separate Cases Dismissed - 8/15/2017

Sometimes prosecutors make mistakes. In 1993, our client pled to several cases relating to a fraud. He was to be incarcerated for a period of time and then start probation when he was released. Somehow though, before our Client even began probation, the prosecution filed paperwork to violate his probation. When he was released from incarceration, the prison system never told him to report to probation and, 24 years later, he found out that he had 5 warrants out for his arrest for violation of probation and absconding. Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert, Benjamin Jones, spring into action, quickly getting the warrants quashed and the cases dismissed.

Resisting Arrest and Disorderly Conduct (Active Warrant)

Dropped - 8/8/2017

Orange County - Our client came to us with an outstanding active arrest warrant for Resisting Arrest and Disorderly Conduct. We were able to quickly and efficiently get our client's case favorably resolved by getting the prosecutor to agree to drop the Resisting charge and to withdraw the arrest warrant. We entered a no contest plea to only the Disorderly Conduct charge. The court withheld adjudication (no conviction) and our client only paid a small fine (no jail, no probation).

Result: No conviction, no jail, no probation for Disorderly Conduct charge. Resisting charge and arrest warrant dropped.

Family Law/Petition to Establish Paternity

Request Granted - 7/27/2017

Lake County - Client hired us to establish his paternity rights as a father. Longwell Lawyers was able to proceed to a Final Hearing and obtain all of the rights, including time sharing and decision making rights, that our client was rightfully seeking.

Result: The Judge granted our client exactly the time sharing schedule and terms that he was requesting.

Tampering with a Witness and Battery

Dropped - 7/5/2017

Client was a passenger in an Uber and vomited during the ride, causing the driver to stop and tell the client to get out. The Client got out but realized he left his smart phone, ID, and credit card in the backseat. He chased down the car and was yelling for the driver to stop so he could get his things. The driver panicked and claimed that our client was trying to attack her. She claimed that when she tried to call the police our client attacked her and knocked her phone away, knocking her to the ground in the process. Our client was intoxicated and was arrested for Tampering with a witness to hinder a 9-11 call (Felony) and battery (misdemeanor).

Result: Longwell Lawyers engaged in discovery, took depositions, and prepared the case for trial. On the day of trial, the client agreed to enter a plea to a separate charge of disorderly intoxication only and all original criminal charges were dropped.

Trafficking Oxycodone (15 year/$500,000 minimums)

Lesser Offense - 6/22/2017

Orange County - Client was set up by an acquaintance, who was working as a Confidential Informant, to buy 120 pills of Oxycodone from an undercover law enforcement officer. The client was originally facing a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years prison (up to 30 years) and a $500,000 fine. Longwell Lawyers prepared the case for trial by obtaining discovery, taking depositions, and pursuing an entrapment defense. As a result, the government offered our client a lesser offense with 3 years prison and no fine or probation. The client accepted the offer in lieu of proceeding with further litigation. Any sentence less than a dismissal or a Not Guilty is a disappointment, especially when it involves incarceration. However, our client obtained the best possible outcome under the circumstances, without risking a minimum mandatory 15 years prison/$500,000 fine – up to 30 years prison.

Result: client accepted plea to lesser offense with 3 years prison and no fine or probation instead of risking a minimum mandatory 15 years prison/$500,000 fine – up to 30 years prison.

Juvenile - Armed Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling with a Firearm

Dropped - 6/14/2017

Orange County - Our client was arrested and initially held in juvenile detention without release based upon an allegation made by a school-mate who claimed that our client, along with another individual, broke down the front door of a home and invaded the home while occupied by the school-mate. Longwell Lawyers was able to get the client released and immediately prepared the case for trial. During depositions it was established that the witness/school-mate only quickly peeked out to see who was breaking-in, and only saw the back of the head of the person who he identified as our client. Furthermore, an alibi defense was asserted establishing that our client was at home at the time of the alleged offense. Finally, evidence was uncovered that another individual, who looked similar to our client, was associating with the other accused "co-defendant" and was allegedly committing other burglaries at about the same time. As such, Longwell Lawyers was able to convince the officer and the prosecutor that the case involved a mistaken identification and got the prosecutor to drop the case on the day of trial.

Result: charge dropped by the state
