I take cases to trial, I absolutely believe that while negotiations are an important part of criminal defense, taking the case to trial and making the government prove their case is very important.
- Not guilty of Robbery in the second degree. My client was wrongfully accused by his family and a store clerk of committing a strong armed robbery at a convenience store.
- Not guilty of five counts of sexual abuse in the first degree. My client was wrongfully accused of sexual abuse against his step daughter.
- Not guilty of Sexual Abuse III. My client had a traumatic brain injury and was accused of sexually abusing a neighbor. I successfully utilized a psychologist to show my client didn't read the signs and lacked intent; the jury agreed and acquitted him.
- Not guilty of Murder. My client was accused of murdering his cousin. The case suggested my client killed his cousin, but only in the heat of the moment. My client was convicted of manslaughter instead of a life sentence for murder.
- Not guilty of criminal mischief and theft in the first degree: My client was accused of stealing copper from local utilities even though there was no evidence he had done so. The prosecution relied on my client's criminal record to secure an unjust conviction. The jury disagreed.
