Attempted Murder and Assault 1st Degree Case Dismissed
Lance's client was arrested for stabbing an acquaintance with a knife
after several witnesses saw blood in the hallway, and observed our client
in video surveillance with the victim. A bloody knife was later recovered
which was tied to our client. Client faced up to 25 years in prison. We
acted quickly to interview certain witnesses who were initially the key
prosecution witnesses but provided critical information that was valuable
to our perspective which was that our client was not criminally responsible.
After carefully reviewing police and medical records and aggressively
fighting in court for several months, we were pleased to have our client's
case dismissed and our client's record sealed. Getting our client's
record sealed was very important to our client because of a professional
license our client held and which could have been lost with a conviction.
