AGGRAVATED BATTERY AND AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON

County: Orange County

Type of Case/Charge: Aggravated Battery and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Summary: Client was arrested and accused of pointing a gun at a co-worker and threatening to shoot. Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert Benjamin Jones led the team at Longwell Lawyers to a successful outcome by preparing the case for trial and asserting critical pre-trial attacks on the State’s case. Attorney Jones argued for dismissal based upon a procedural due process violation caused by prosecutorial delay and the government’s failure to preserve key video evidence. Furthermore, attorney Jones filed a “Stand Your Ground” motion arguing that our client was immune from prosecution because the client was acting in self-defense. As a result of Mr. Jones’ pre-trial motions and trial preparation strategy, the government dropped all charges without even proceeding to hearing or trial.

Result: All charges dropped
