JUVENILE BATTERY AND RESISTING ARREST

Charges Dropped - 11/12/2020

Orange County, FL – Before retaining our services, our client was charged in Juvenile Court with Battery for allegedly being part of a group of students who “jumped” another student. The client was then also subsequently arrested for Resisting Without Violence, in a separate incident. Since the client is an A/B student with no significant disciplinary history, the client’s parents became concerned that the client was being unfairly targeted by the school resource officer and contacted Longwell Lawyers. Longwell Lawyers was able to quickly get the prosecutor to agree not to file any charges for the Resisting allegation. Furthermore, after reviewing all of the evidence and preparing for trial, Longwell Lawyers was able to get the prosecutor to agree that the Battery charge could not be proven at trial. As such, the State filed a Notice of Nolle Prosequi (dropped the charge).

Battery on a Public Official and Disorderly Conduct

Case Dropped - 11/9/2020

Lake County, Florida -Our client was the long-time City Manager for a city in Lake County, Florida. Despite his highly effective and successful tenure as the City Manager, one of the City Council-members became upset with him when he made cost cutting recommendations that would negatively impact the job of the City Council-member’s spouse. After a City Council meeting, our client was angrily confronted outside the building by the Council-member and her spouse. The spouse became physically aggressive. The Council-member realized that a by-stander was recording the incident, prompting the Council-member to falsely claim that she had been struck by our client and that her spouse was only protecting her. Unbelievably, the Council-member and her spouse were able to coax the Police Chief (who did not view the video) to arrest the City Manager for a felony charge of Battery on a Public Official and a misdemeanor charge of Disorderly Conduct. Longwell Lawyers was retained to represent the accused City Manager in this highly contentious, publicized matter. After gathering and presenting the case to the prosecutor (which included several sworn statements from eyewitnesses and video footage of the incident), it became clear that the accused City Manager did not commit any crime – and he was exonerated. As such, all charges were dropped by the filing of a No Information Notice.
