OPEN CARRY OF A FIREARM, CONCEALED CARRY OF A FIREARM, BATTERY, AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH A FIREARM

All charges Dropped – 12/21/2016

While on vacation in Orlando, 2 male patrons accosted our Client’s wife while they were in sports bar/restaurant on International Drive. Our client defended her. Ultimately, police were called and the 2 patrons somehow convinced police that our Client was the one who attacked them and, in so doing, brandished a firearm, placing them in fear for their lives. After Longwell Lawyers conducted a thorough pre-charging investigation, prosecutors were convinced that our Client was actually defending his wife and not the instigator in a drunken bar fight. Nevertheless, prosecutors charged our Client with “Open Carry of a Firearm.” Undaunted, Longwell Lawyers implemented its trial oriented strategy by getting statements from law enforcement that directly contradicted the 2 patrons’ account of what happened. Once prosecutors were shown that Law Enforcement’s testimony would directly contradict the 2 patrons’ testimony, they dropped all charges on the eve of trial.
