KIDNAPPING WITH INTENT TO INFLICT BODILY HARM OR TERRORIZE WITH A FIREARM, AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON

County: Orange

Charge: Kidnapping with Intent to inflict Bodily Harm or Terrorize with a Firearm, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Result: All Charges Dismissed

Summary: People who are on the eve of trial and are unpleased (for any number of reasons) with their current attorney often contact Longwell Lawyers, scared and looking for better trial representation. Since beginning representation at such a late stage of litigation is not always a good idea (as it may put us and our clients at a significant disadvantage), we are often hesitant to take on these types of cases. Occasionally, though, the right case presents itself and we are able to take over a case at the last minute, diligently prepare for trial on an extremely truncated schedule, and maximize our client’s chances for a favorable result at trial. That was the case here. After having a full and frank discussion with the family regarding the pros and cons of changing attorneys at such a late stage of litigation, Longwell Lawyers agreed to take the case. Expert Criminal Trial Attorney, Benjamin Jones, and the team at Longwell Lawyers, worked overtime to take over a case, where the Defendant could be sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of at least 10 years in prison, with only 2 business days before trial was set to begin. Given this effort, Mr. Jones was able to stand firm, prepared to start a major trial, without delay, on the morning of trial. When it became clear that our client and his highly skilled and prepared lawyers were ready to proceed to trial, the prosecution chose to dismiss all charges.
