Recent Criminal/DUI Cases.
Case: Client charged with the criminal charge of DUI. After finally reviewing all relevant material obtained through discovery, our office discovered a defective flaw in the procedure instituted by the police Department. As a result of our efforts, there was NO SUSPENSION and the matter was reduced to a lesser charge and the lesser charge will be expunged from the client’s record AFTER ONE YEAR. All without the need of a TRIAL.
Case: Client was charged with having over 4 kilograms of marijuana when stopped by State Police. Client, who was not a US citizen and with NO CONTACTS in Rhode Island, was held without bail prior to our representation. After our office’s involvement, client was able to convince the State Prosecutor and the Court of issues concerning the search of the vehicle when the drugs were discovered, granted bail and allowed to leave the State while his case was pending. Over a one year period, all relevant documentation obtained by this office through the discovery process was reviewed, analyzed and ultimately argued the case before the Pre-Trial Judge. The State of Rhode Island amended its charge to a much less serious charge which should allow the defendant to not be subject to deportation. This was also done without the need of a trial.
Case: Client charged with two felony counts of cheating at Twin River. He was arraigned and restrained from having any contact with the casino. After numerous court appearances over almost 18 months and the request of statements and video alleging the cheating, our office reviewed all the material and consulted with expert witnesses in preparation of a trial. Many witnesses associated with the arrests were also interviewed. After arguing the matter before the Court and all the deficiencies in the Stat’s case, ALL charges were dismissed without the need of a trial.
