Client Facing Abuse Allegations Found Not Guilty by Jury

Category: Child Endangerment

Abuse allegations against one of our clients jeopardized his future as a home health care aide, a job he had worked in for over a decade.

The client was in his mid-40s with no criminal record when one of his patients told police they were being mistreated by our client. Without a thorough investigation, police sided with the patient, and the aide faced charges of child endangerment and patient abuse.

The case went to trial for months, but our work remained aggressive and unwavering. Gathering discovery on the case was particularly crucial; we were able to argue that the alleged victim was lying, and ultimately, the jury found our client not guilty.

This result not only meant our client was allowed to finally resume work, but also meant he wouldn’t serve six months in jail, pay significant fines, or lose his home healthcare license. We got the charges sealed from our client’s record, and the aide was able to carry on with his reputation and future intact.

Case Thrown Out for Client Charged With Third OVI

Category: OVI

A client with two prior OVI charges faced up to a year of jail time and license suspension after being charged with a third OVI offense.

Officers pulled him over for allegedly speeding when they claimed to “smell a small odor” of alcohol in the car. Although our client refused a breathalyzer, he successfully performed a sobriety field test. Nevertheless, he was charged with a third-in-time OVI, and faced significant consequences due to this being a repeat offense.

Upon collecting discovery, we believed there to be no probable cause for his arrest and argued for a motion to suppress. The judge agreed, and through our legal team’s arguments over the lack of evidence against our client, we were able to get the case thrown out completely.

Felony Theft Charge Reduced to Misdemeanor

Category: Theft

After a Butler County client allegedly stole a significant amount of money from department stores, she faced a felony theft charge with severe penalties.

When charged with a felony in Ohio, it’s important to choose an attorney with both perseverance and mitigation experience. Our client’s trial took an extensive amount of time, but we remained dedicated. We kept her needs in mind with every decision and leveraged our knowledge of the court system to get her a desirable outcome. We presented evidence of her physical and mental health issues in court, working tirelessly to negotiate with the prosecution on reducing her sentence.

After thorough discussions with prosecutors, we got our client’s high-level felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor. This meant the felony was kept off her record and she was ordered to serve only probation.

Probing Weak Case Leads to Reduced Charges in Clermont County OVI

Category: Alcohol

Our client, a Clermont County professional in his mid-30s, was charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence, his second such offense in nearly a decade. It might not have been a high-tier OVI charge, but under Ohio law, repeated offenses lead to more severe penalties.

At the time of his arrest, our client was tested by a breathalyzer, and his Blood Alcohol Content level was found to be high, 0.15. We began our investigation into his arrest. Through discovery, we were able to find some inconsistencies between the arresting officer’s statements and the evidence presented.

It can be difficult to negotiate a plea with the prosecutor, especially if the defendant has had prior run-ins with the law, like our client in this case. However, we were able to find a weakness in this case, and eventually, both the judge and the prosecutor agreed to less severe charges.

We were able to discover the weaknesses in the case by remaining persistent and combing through the case details to find the best argument against the prosecutor’s side of the case.

Drug Charges Reduced from First- to Fourth-Degree Felonies, No Prison Time

Category: Drugs

Our client, a worker from Hamilton County, was initially indicted on serious drug charges. He was originally charged with possession and trafficking in drugs—he received a Major Drug Offender designation. If convicted, he faced a mandatory 10-year prison sentence with the MDO designation.

Although our client had some criminal activity in his past, we worked to prove the drug charges were much too steep, given his involvement and the prosecution’s evidence. Through discovery, we found there were some issues with the investigation.

Using statements from other people involved in the case and body camera footage provided by law enforcement, we were able to convince the prosecutor to reduce charges to a probational offense, which was preferable to a lengthy prison sentence.

In the end, our client had a minimal fine to pay, a year of probation, and the knowledge that he dodged a severe prison sentence thanks to our diligence.

Not Guilty Ruling Won in Hamilton County Permitting Drug Abuse Case

Category: Drugs

We recently had a client accused of permitting drug abuse, a first-degree misdemeanor, the first blemish on his clean record.

The prosecution alleged our client had allowed someone to use his vehicle to commit a felony drug offense. Our client was adamant he was only trying to help this person out and had no knowledge of the drug use.

Through discovery, we found the evidence supported our client’s story, but the prosecution still said he committed the offense. He faced six months in jail and fines up to $1,000.

After a bench trial, our client was found not guilty and was acquitted of all charges.
