ALL 11 CHARGES DROPPED – 8/27/2021

 

Brevard County, Florida

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.
