A 22 year-old Chicago native was charged with possession of narcotics after police officers raided a home he visited. He was immediately arrested and taken into custody. After much research, we determined that our client was innocent of the charges before him. Our client was at the wrong place at the wrong time. It then came time for us to prove his innocence. We worked diligently and efficiently in our preparation for his case. The outcome favored our client and he was freed.
Recently, we went to trial on a case where the prosecution alleged that my client was guilty of residential burglary. They charged my client based on a very general description - black male, late teens to early twenties, wearing a pair of jeans and a dark colored hooded sweatshirt. The police arrested my client and another male based on that description. Of course, my client and his co-defendant were merely the first two people that the officers saw who "fit the description." After much preparation and work, we won the trial. Not Guilty!!!
