ACTUAL CLIENT RESULTS

Gross Sexual Imposition

Logan County Common Pleas Court

Our client was charged with 6 counts of GSI with mandatory prison time.  During the pendency of the case, the complainant accused our client of stalking her and driving by her house so the jail put out a warrant out and our client ended up in jail.  His family notified us and we immediately filed a motion and disputed the accusations.  After a hearing where we argued our client’s position, the court agreed with us and let our client out of jail and withdrew the warrant.  Our client maintained the position that he was completely innocent of these charges and we took the case to trial.  After several days at trial, the jury deliberated and came back with a verdict of NOT GUILTY on all charges.  Afterwards, the jurors complimented us and our presentation at trial and stated it was Mr. Kane’s performance that convinced them to say not guilty.

 

Weapons Under Disability

Montgomery County Common Pleas Court

After being chased by the police, our client threw his gun in some bushes and was then arrested for having a weapon while under disability.  We took the case to trial and argued the State could not prove the gun belonged to our client.  Despite evidence to the contrary, the jury rendered a verdict of NOT GUILTY.  Mr. Kane’s performance convinced the jury the charge was not proven.

 

Aggravated Robbery

Greene County Common Pleas Court

Our client was charged with robbing a person at gunpoint and pistol whipping him.  After a difficult trial with the judge being unfair to us and ruling against us on several key issues, the jury started their deliberations.  Six hours later the jury sent a note to the court indicating they could not reach a verdict.  The court ruled a mistrial, which allowed our client to later get a good deal and he has now resumed his life with his family.   

 

Burglary

Montgomery County Common Pleas Court

We felt this was a textbook case of confirmation bias, where a police officer has tunnel vision and investigates the crime from the point of view that the defendant is guilty and not from an objective position.  Witnesses said they saw someone leaving the area of a house that had been burglarized.  The detective decided our client was the one who did it and did not consider anyone else, despite there being evidence our client was not the person who burglarized this house.  We went to trial and the jury said NOT GUILTY.  Our client was immediately let out of jail.

OVI

Vandalia Municipal Court

This was the first time our client had even been charged with a crime.  The officer suspended her license and prohibited her from driving.  We filed a motion with the court and got her driving privileges back immediately.  We then went to court and got her case dismissed.  She now has her license fully reinstated and no criminal convictions on her record.

 

Underage Consumption/Possession Drugs

Miami County Municipal Court

Our client was 18 and arrested for being under the influence of alcohol and possession of drugs.  We were able to settle the case for a $50 fine and no probation.  This result allowed our client to continue with her therapy and able to expunge her charge in a year and have a clean record for applying for college and jobs.

 

Physical Control

Our client was charged with stealing a purse from an elderly woman.  We worked out a settlement that allowed our client to get probation and he did no jail time.

 

OVI/DUS

Vandalia Municipal Court

Our client was charged with his second OVI.  During his case, he was arrested again for Driving Under Suspension with mandatory jail time.  The court immobilized our client’s vehicle and kept it in the tow yard, thereby accumulating significant fees.  We filed a motion with the court and got his vehicle released, which saved our client thousands of dollars.  Then we went to court and convinced the court to release his vehicle from the immobilization, got him driving privileges, and kept him out of jail.  Our client was very happy with the results.

Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor

Miami County Common Pleas Court

OVI

Xenia Municipal Court

Making False Alarms

Our juvenile client was charged with Making False Alarms after an alleged threat of shooting.  The court took this charge very seriously but we were able to finish the case with our client participating in some activities at school and completing a few requirements of the court.  Our client did not have to do any jail time and he is eligible to get his charge expunged.

Rape

Greene County Common Pleas Court

Our client was a college student charged with raping another college student.  We set the case for a jury trial.  After several days of testimony and arguing, we were able to convince the jury to render a NOT GUILTY verdict on all counts.  Our client was let out of the jail the same day and was able to resume going to college.  He was grateful that we saved his life and future.

 

Attempted Rape/Felonious Assault/Gross Sexual Imposition

Greene County Common Pleas Court

Our client was in the Greene County Jail after being charged with Attempted Rape and Felonious Assault on a woman he did not know.  Due to the charge, he was facing over 20 years in prison and registration as a sex offender for life.  We set the case for trial and forced the State to bear the burden of proving their case.  The prosecutor knew we would exploit the facts of the case and they agreed to settle the case at the last minute with an assault charge only.  This allowed my client to get out jail and put on probation.  Instead of being sent to prison and registering as a sex offender and having his life being completely ruined, he was set free and resumed his life with his girlfriend and his mother.

 

Theft of Drugs

Montgomery County Common Pleas Court

Our client was a registered nurse and charged with stealing prescription drugs from her employer.

We were able to get the case dismissed in order to avoid a conviction and client entered a treatment program that helped resolve her addiction.

 

OVI

Fairborn Municipal Court 

Our client had no prior criminal record but was charged with OVI.  After negotiations with the prosecutor, we were able to settle his case with a guilty plea to Reckless Driving.  Our client did not receive a license suspension, did not have to do any jail time, did not have to do an intervention class, and only had to pay a $50 fine.  This result was especially great for our client as he could not afford to have a license suspension for his employment or have an OVI on his record.

 

Drug Trafficking/Engaging in a Pattern of Corrupt Activity

Greene County Common Pleas Court

Our client was charged with 15 counts of Drug Possession, Drug Trafficking, and Engaging in a Pattern of Corrupt Activity, which alleged she was working as part of a large organization selling drugs.  These charges carry severe penalties and our client admitted to the police she was a large drug trafficker.  After filing several motions and fighting the case, we were able to get our client out of jail and on probation after getting the serious charges dismissed.  Instead of many years in prison, we helped her serve a few weeks in the local jail and then put on probation.

 

Domestic Violence

Clermont County Municipal Court

Our client received a Domestic Violence charge after an argument with his girlfriend.  The facts of the case did not fully support the victim’s claims and we demanded to have a trial in the matter.  The case ended up getting dismissed and our client was able to keep his job and keep that type of charge off his record.

 

Rape

Hamilton County Common Pleas Court

Our client was an immigrant from Africa and was charged with Rape after his babysitter made some allegations.  Due to the number of counts and the charges, he was facing up to 40 years in prison.  He was the sole provider for his family, who were all from Africa.  After long negotiations, we settled the case with a felony assault charge and no jail time.  This meant he did not have to register as a sex offender and did not go to prison.  He was able to continue supporting his family.

 

OVI/Resisting Arrest

Darke County Municipal Court

After reviewing the facts of the case, we decided to have a jury trial on this OVI case.  Our client had multiple charges stemming from the traffic stop and after careful consideration while picking the jurors, we went forward with the jury trial.  The jury came back with NOT GUILTY verdicts on all counts.  Our client was especially grateful because this was a third-offense OVI and he would have gone to jail for at least 60 days, he would have lost his job, and the State would have taken his vehicle as forfeited.

 

Theft/Passing Bad Check/Criminal Tools

Fairborn Municipal Court

Client was an employee at Ohio State and charged with theft-related offenses. This was significant because a conviction would result in termination at her employment.

Thus keeping her record clean for future jobs. 

 

Domestic Violence

Montgomery County Municipal Court
