Case #: 02####6
Officers were dispatched to a residence regarding a physical altercation between residents of shared household. The officers located the alleged victim outside of the reported residence. The victim stated that our client attacked him and that he wished to press charges. The officers approached our client, who was in the front yard and upon observing the officers approaching, locked the front gate to his residence and ran inside his house, closing the door behind him. An officer then jumped over the locked gate and kicked open the door, arresting our client in the kitchen of his residence and charging him with battery and resisting without violence. After the arrest, our client experienced chest pains and was taken to the hospital where he engaged in a loud verbal argument with police in the privacy of his Emergency Room treatment room which resulted in a Public Intoxication charge, which was subsequently dismissed after filing a c-4 motion that the facts of the case did not support a conviction (specifically that our client was not in a public area and there was no threat to the safety of others). We filed a c-4 motion to dismiss the Resisting Without Violence charge as well claiming that the officer was not in the execution of a legal duty since he did not obtain a warrant prior to arresting our client. We also argued that the Hot Pursuit doctine did not apply because this is a misdemeanor offense and there was no threat to the safety of others because the victim was outside of the residence, in the custody of the police and there was no evidence which could possibly be destroyed in the residence. The state never filed a traverse or demurrer and on the day of the hearing, we requested that the Judge take this inactivity as an acknowledgment that the State was in agreement with our motion and we requested a dismissal. The Judge agreed and dismissed the Resisting Without Violence on 12/13. Our client was thrilled to have his Public Intoxication and his Resisting Without Violence dismissed.
"I just wanted to say thank you! Your firm not only got all my daughters charges dismissed, but there were no court costs or even driving school! She had definitely gotten herself into some trouble and I cannot believe the outcome was this good!! Thank you again! I will recommend you to anyone that asks. I don't know if there are any website for reviews on law firms, but if there is let me know so I can say how excellent your firm is." Yelp User - "As a young college student, being charged with a DUI was one of the scariest things I have had to deal with. The Ticket Clinic was able to get my case together quickly and get me the best deal I could have asked for. The DUI charges were dropped. The Ticket Clinic was able to put me at ease during one of the hardest times of my life." Sinead - "The Ticket Clinic was professional and in constant contact with me from the first phone called, until the case was closed. To make a long story short, I was not convicted of a DUI - since then, I referred a friend to the Ticket Clinic." Richard - "I was faced with a DUI. Most people fear jail, but I heard that it would ruin my record for life. This can cost you a job, credit, relationships. The more we are an online world the more your record is available to the public - a DUI stays forever. The Ticket Clinic didn’t settle, but successfully defended my DUI case. They are the only ones I would trust confidently with a serious matter." Dave - "I was face with an unjust DUI and called The Ticket Clinic to represent me. I was never faced with such a serious situation before. TTC’s professionalism, confidence and knowledge put me at ease, knowing I was in good hands. As I went through this ordeal, TTC was on top of everything and brought this to closure quite quickly. TTC has also helped me find a lawyer in another state for a friend in a similar situation. I highly recommend The Ticket Clinic!" Scott - "I was facing a DUI charge but TTC got my charges dismissed, even though I submitted to a breath test! I would recommend them to anyone facing a DUI. Thank you again for everything." Kiersen - "I was pleased to receive your letter of February 21, 2017 advising me that all charges against me were dismissed by the Court. I am very pleased how the Ticket Clinic handled my case. I definitely will recommend the Ticket Clinic to friends and neighbors should they be issued a traffic ticket. Many thanks again for solving my problem."
