ROBBERY – NOT GUILTY
The firm represented a client who was arrested, charged and went to trial on a robbery charge. Our client was facing a 2nd degree felony charge with 15 years in prison. The jury found our client not guilty based upon the defense of mistaken identity.
CAPITAL SEXUAL BATTERY – CHARGES DROPPED
Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. represented a client who was charged with a violent crime, capital sexual battery, a first degree felony punishable by mandatory life in prison. The only evidence the State had was the client’s confession, which was repeated to several individuals. After intensive discovery and legal research, we were able to successfully argue a motion to dismiss. The charges were dismissed by the court.
DUI – NOT GUILTY
The firm represented a client charged with driving under the influence (DUI). This was the client’s first offense and he refused to take a breathalyzer test. At trial the police officer testified that our client appeared intoxicated at the scene. The videotape at the testing facility showed otherwise. Our client was found not guilty.
INTERNAL AFFAIRS COMPLAINT & NO FILE
We represented a client charged with battery. Our client was seriously injured by the arresting police officer as he was arrested. After investigating this matter, we helped the client file an internal affairs complaint against the officer and persuaded the State to “No File” the case. The police officer was placed on administrative suspension and may be released from the department.
ARMED BURGLARY (JUVENILE) – PROBATION GRANTED
The firm represented a juvenile charged with armed burglary of several residences, a first degree felony. At an intense sentencing hearing, we presented a variety of witnesses and educational research, and argued for juvenile sanctions. The court had the discretion to sentence him to prison, but our client received a sentence of probation.
SEXUAL BATTERY – CHARGES DROPPED
The firm represented a teenager who was investigated for sexual battery based on the accusation of a fellow college student. The police felt that sufficient probable cause existed to arrest our client. Ultimately, through vigorous investigation and preparation, the charges against our client were dropped.
DOMESTIC BATTERY – CHARGES DROPPED
We represented a client arrested for domestic violence (battery). Despite the arrest, we were ultimately able to get the charges dropped after demonstrating to the government the flaws in their case.
DRUG POSSESSION – CHARGES DISMISSED
Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. represented a client arrested for possession of Oxycodone, a third degree felony. Our client was a passenger in a car and was arrested with several other people. Despite the police report, which alleged that our client was in illegal possession of the drugs, charges were dismissed based upon our argument that our client’s Fourth Amendment Rights were violated by the police in the manner in which the search took place.
DRUG TRAFFICKING – NOT GUILTY
We represented a client arrested for trafficking of Cocaine. A jury returned a verdict of not guilty despite the narcotics being found underneath our client’s seat in the vehicle.
DUI – CHARGES DISMISSED
Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charges were dismissed against our client after the filing of Motion to Dismiss and Suppress due to illegal police conduct and procedure. Our client was exonerated and his drivers license was restored.
DUI – REDUCED CHARGE
The firm represented a client in Dade County who was arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) after breath results of more than twice the legal limit. We filed a Motion to Suppress the stop, arrest and breath results. The prosecutor ultimately offered a “reckless driving” reduced plea, thus effectively dismissing the DUI charge. The client’s license was restored and he avoided a DUI conviction.
