Fraud Lawyer David Michael Cantor’s Office Gets 61 Felony Charges Reduced to One Felony Charge

Scottsdale, AZ. April 21, 2010Fraud Lawyer David Michael Cantor’s Office was able to get 61 felony charges, ranging from Fraud Schemes to Participation in a Criminal Syndicate, reduced to a plea of a simple charge of Class 6 Undesignated Felony of Possession of a Forgery Device.

Fraud Lawyer Cantor’s associate was representing Ms. Dye, who was employed at a tax return preparation business which her step father owned, in the case of the State of Arizona v. Dye. Dye had been directed by her stepfather to prepare numerous tax returns and to sign the documents with his name and a social security number that did not belong to either her or her stepfather. This resulted in over $1,000,000 of tax losses to the State and Federal Government. Dye was ultimately charged with 61 felony counts and was potentially exposed to over 200 years in prison.

“The Law Offices of David Michael Cantor worked hard to provide evidence to the Assistant Attorney General that Ms. Dye was unwittingly dragged into this scheme,” said Fraud Lawyer David Michael Cantor. “As a result our office was able to get 61 felony charges reduced to just one and we were able to keep Ms. Dye from being sentenced to any jail time.”

Fraud Lawyer Cantor’s associate presented evidence to the Arizona Assistant Attorney General that Dye was unwittingly pulled into the scheme, and ultimately resolved the case with a plea of a Class 6 Undesignated Felony of Possession of a Forgery Device. Dye received six months of supervised probation, with the charge being designated as a Misdemeanor upon completion of probation, and was able to avoid serving any jail time.

Fraud Attorney David Michael Cantor’s Office Gets 103 Felony Charges Reduced to Four Misdemeanors

Scottsdale, AZ. April 21, 2010Arizona Fraud Attorney David Michael Cantor’s Office was able to get 103 Felony counts, ranging from sale of unlicensed securities to fraud schemes and theft, reduced to 4 outright misdemeanors and earn their client unsupervised probation with a low level of restitution as opposed to jail time.

Fraud attorney Cantor’s associate was representing Mr. Rosepink, a prominent estate planning attorney in Scottsdale, AZ, in the case of the State of Arizona V. Rosepink. Rosepink was an unwitting partner to a concert promoter who was selling investment contracts with a high rate of return. Rosepink invested his own money, his family’s money and assisted in many of his clients investing their money with the promoter. The promoter eventually stole $250,000,000 and absconded.

Fraud attorney Cantor’sassociate was able to provide evidence that Rosepink was a victim and should not be treated as a co-conspirator due to the fact that he also lost a large sum of money.

“Mr. Rosepink was clearly the victim of this crime as opposed to a perpetrator,” said Fraud attorney David Michael Cantor. “Our firm was able to provide evidence that proved this to the judge and as a result we were able to get 103 felony charges reduced to four misdemeanors.”

Ultimately, Rosepink’s case was resolved with four counts of a Class 6 Open Felony for Solicitation of Sale of Unregistered Securities. On the day of sentencing the judge designated all four felony counts as outright misdemeanors. Rosepink was placed on unsupervised probation with a low level of restitution and was able to avoid serving any jail time.

Arizona Criminal Attorney Gets Breath Alcohol Readings Suppressed

Phoenix, AZ.  March 8, 2010Arizona DUI lawyers David Michael Cantor’s office was able to get the breath alcohol readings suppressed in the case of State v. Norton. The Downtown Justice Court suppressed Norton’s breath alcohol readings of .136 and .125.

Norton was arrested for an alleged DUI and asked to speak with an attorney in private. An associate for Arizona criminal attorney Cantor was able to provide evidence that when Norton was placed in a private phone room he nervously chewed on several fingernails. The officer, who placed Norton in the phone room, claimed he “watched Norton the entire time” in order to perform a “deprivation period” prior to the breath test. The “deprivation period” requires that the suspect does not ingest anything or regurgitate prior to a breath test. The State’s expert stated that anything—including fingers in the mouth – violates the required deprivation period.

“The officer failed to properly perform a ‘deprivation period’,” said Arizona criminal attorney David Michael Cantor. “Due to this fact, we were able to get the reading suppressed and a non-DUI plea for our client.”

As a result of the evidence provided by Arizona criminal attorney Cantor’s associate, the judge suppressed the readings and this resulted in a non-DUI plea being offered to Norton.

Arizona Not Guilty Verdict in Driving Under the Influence of Ambien Case

Scottsdale, AZ.  March 5, 2010 – David Michael Cantor’s office earned his client a not guilty verdict on the charges of driving under the influence of Ambien (i.e., DUI Drugs) in the case of State v. Niederer. A Scottsdale City Court jury found Niederer not guilty of the stated charges.

Cantor’s associate provided evidence that Niederer did well on field sobriety tests and that any mistakes observed were due to the effects of pain and fatigue Niederer was experiencing as a result of strep throat and not Ambien. The jury found that the Gas Chromatograph device utilized by the State to test Niederer’s blood was questionable and the State did not bring in any maintenance or calibration records on that particular device.

“We were able to provide evidence that Niederer did quite well on the field sobriety tests and any ill effects were not the cause of Ambien,” said David Michael Cantor. “As a result we were able to earn a not guilty verdict for our client.”

During cross examination of the State’s criminalist who analyzed the blood, an associate for Arizona criminal lawyer Cantor was able to get the criminalist to testify that she would perform poorly on a field sobriety test due to the fatigue and pain caused by a recent root canal. Another State’s expert admitted that although Niederer had Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (an involuntary jerking of the eyes due to a neurological dysfunction). Ambien could cause this eye dysfunction without causing any driving impairment.

Due to the evidence provided by David Michael Cantor’s associate, the Scottsdale City Court jury returned a not guilty verdict on the charges of driving under the influence of drugs.

Arizona Criminal Attorney Earns a Verdict of Not Guilty of DUI and a Hung Verdict on the Charges of DWI

Scottsdale, AZ.  March 4, 2010Arizona Criminal Attorney David Michael Cantor’s office earned his client a verdict of not guilty of DUI and a hung verdict on the charges of DWI in the case of State v. Levitz. A Scottsdale City Court jury found that Levitz was not guilty of DUI (impaired to the slightest degree) and they hung on the issue of whether he had a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher (i.e., DWI).

According to a BAC test, Levitz blood alcohol content was a .120 but criminal attorney David Michael Cantor’s associate was able to provide concern of the fact that the test analyst for the City of Scottsdale used an alcohol based hand sanitizer prior to testing the blood sample. In addition, Cantor was able to show that the criminalist did not properly put on gloves prior to the testing.

“The test analyst did not properly follow the necessary procedures before conducting the blood alcohol content test and the field sobriety test showed that Levitz was not impaired,” said criminal attorney David Michael Cantor. “We were able to provide this evidence to the jury and they returned successful verdicts for our client.”

Criminal attorney David Michael Cantor’s associate was able to provide evidence that the field sobriety test showed that Levitz was not impaired. Levitz had only four cues on the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test (i.e., the Eye Test) which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states is indicative of being a .05 BAC. Because the scientific community will testify that all people are impaired at a BAC of .08, but below that level many people are not impaired, the jury found Levitz not guilty of DUI.

Due to the fact that Levitz was found not guilty of being impaired to the slightest degree, it is unlikely that the State will retry the charge of DWI because the not guilty verdict necessarily indicates that Levitz’s BAC was not a .08 or higher.
