POSSESSION OF A FIREARM IN COMMISSION OF A FELONY; POSSESSION OF CANNABIS WITH INTENT TO SELL; POSSESSION OF MORE THAN 20 GRAMS OF CANNABIS

NO INFORMATION NOTICE FILED/ALL CHARGES DROPPED - 9/2/2021

Orange County, FL

Client was a passenger in a car that was stopped in a “High Crime Area” for various traffic infractions. After smelling marijuana, law enforcement removed our client and the driver from the vehicle and questioned them as the car was searched. Our client admitted to having recently smoked marijuana in the car and the officers’ search revealed a bag with more than 66 grams of marijuana in it, along with a firearm, and our client’s ID. Client was immediately arrested for several felony charges. Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert Benjamin Jones successfully challenged the legality of the search, along with what conclusions a court is legally allowed to draw when a person’s ID is found in a bag containing contraband. Eventually, by presenting strong caselaw to the prosecution, Longwell Lawyers was able to convince prosecutors to close their case without ever formally filing charges against our client.

ALL CHARGES DROPPED - 9/1/2021

Osceola County, FL

Our client originally hired a different attorney. After 4 months of representation, he was still sitting in jail without a bond and had watched 2 of his co-defendants be sentenced to more than a decade in prison, each. Worried about lack of progress, scared by how his codefendants faired and intimidated by the potential life sentence hanging over his head, our client hired Longwell Lawyers. 11 days after being hired, Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert Benjamin Jones secured our client’s release from custody and went to work attacking the prosecution’s case. Our client and 3 of his friends were accused of holding an acquaintance at gunpoint for over 12 hours as they drove around Osceola County draining their hostage’s bank account at various ATMs and local businesses. The prosecution claimed to have security footage of our client in the car with the victim and the co-defendants, footage of our client in stores using the victim’s credit card, statements from Co-Defendants’ implicating our client in the robbery, the gun that was used in the robbery, and DNA evidence. Employing a trial oriented strategy to challenge the reliability of all of this evidence, Attorney Jones and his client stood firm, rejecting plea offers that would have avoided an adult conviction, resulted in 4 or the 5 charges being dropped, and allowed our client to serve only 3 years in prison. Instead, they chose to assert our client’s powerful constitutional right to a jury trial. The morning the trial was about to start, the prosecution finally realized that the Defense could not be bullied around, and, like most bullies do when challenged, backed down, dropping all charges the morning that trial was scheduled to begin.

When officers arrived at our clients’ home to effectuate an arrest for several offenses, a struggle ensued and the suspect’s parents tried to physically prevent the officers from arresting their son. In the end, all parties were arrested for serious, violent felonies. The mother and father were arrested for 4 counts of Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer and 2 counts of Resisting an Officer Without Violence, while their adult son was arrested for Aggravated Stalking, Violation of Pre-Trial Release, Resisting an Officer Without Violence, Domestic Violence Battery, and Criminal Mischief. Facing a collective 37 years in prison, the family turned to Longwell Lawyers. Florida Bar Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert attorney Benjamin Jones gathered relevant information and challenged the State’s case at every turn, ultimately proving that the officers had no right to enter our clients’ home, and no probable cause to make any arrest. Ultimately, prosecutors had no choice but to drop all charges and initiate an investigation into the officers’ conduct.

ALL CHARGES DROPPED - 8/20/2021

Orange County, FL

While at the Orlando International Airport, our client was alleged to have been drunk and belligerent while going through TSA screening. After getting into a physical altercation with federal TSA agents as well as local law enforcement (that was captured on body cameras as well as airport security cameras), client was charged with several felonies including battery on a law enforcement officer. The team at Longwell Lawyers sprang into action, as attorney Benjamin Jones ensured that the airport preserved the video and fought to achieve its disclosure. After a careful parsing of the BWC in conjunction with broader security footage, we were able to convince prosecutors to first, drop the case down from felonies to misdemeanors… then drop all charges, completely.

AGGRAVATED BATTERY CAUSING GREAT BODILY HARM – NO CONVICTION

NO CONVICTION - 8/9/2021

Lake County, FL

Our client was accused of drunkenly starting a bar brawl wherein he badly broke the hand of an alleged Good Samaritan who claimed he was simply attempting to break up the fight. By calling into question every aspect of the State’s case (whether our client was actually drunk, whether the victim was really attempting to break up the fight, who started the fight, how it was started, etc.) and raising a self-defense/stand-your-ground claim, attorney Benjamin Jones was able to talk the prosecution down from an initial offer of over 5 years in prison, to filing lesser charges of “Felony Battery,” to eventually resolving the matter with no conviction and 1 day of probation.

Although our client was initially arrested for Accessory After the Fact to a Second Degree Felony (Aggravated Assault with a Firearm), once Longwell Lawyers was retained, we worked quickly to get the case dropped at the “intake level”. Longwell Lawyers was able to convince the prosecutor to file a No Information Notice, dropping the case.
