DISORDERLY CONDUCT with a WEAPON (gun) DISMISSED – State v. Mr. W. (DMC No. 7363) (Maricopa/Stanfield Justice Court CR2007-190): Mr. W. was bi-polar and having a manic episode when police were called to the Table Top RV Park. He was in an argument with his partner, when his partner saw Mr. W. going to get his 9mm weapon. His partner attacked Mr. W., and they fought over a 9mm hand gun and an AK 47. Various doors inside of the RV were damaged. We were able to show the Prosecutor that Mr. W. never actually handled a weapon nor threatened anyone. In addition, the alleged victim was no longer being cooperative. All charges were dismissed against Mr. W.

NOT CHARGED/DISMISSED | AGGRAVATED ASSAULT with a GUN (dangerous) NOT CHARGED/DISORDERLY CONDUCT with a GUN (dangerous) DISMISSED – State v. Mr. H. (DMC No. 6699) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2006-030697): Mr. H.’s wife went to the police station and stated that 3 days earlier her husband had threatened her with a gun, demanding to know who had been texting her on her phone. When police went to question Mr. H., he denied that he pointed the gun at her, and instead that he pointed it at himself and threatened to commit suicide. He was arrested for Aggravated Assault (Dangerous) with a gun. We convinced the Prosecutors charging bureau to only charge Mr. H. with the lesser of Disorderly Conduct (Dangerous) with a gun. During the pendency of the case, we presented evidence that Ms. H.’s story kept changing, and in addition, she no longer desired prosecution. Due to various other issues, the State moved to dismiss all charges in full. Originally, Mr. H. was facing 5 to 15 years for the Aggravated Assault, and 1 ½ to 3 years for the Disorderly Conduct (Dangerous). He now has nothing on his record.

DISMISSED | DISORDERLY CONDUCT with a KNIFE (dangerous)/CRIMINAL DAMAGE DISMISSED – State v. Mr. M. (DMC No. 10163) (Maricopa County Juvenile Court JV556331): Mr. M. was prescribed medications for depression, and when he was told his mother would not take him to the pet store to buy him a snake, he went into a rage.  He broke tiles on the kitchen counter, and grabbed a knife and threatened those in his household.  We were able to produce medical records showing that Mr. M. had multiple mental health issues, and we put together a management plan regarding his strategies for managing anger.  Because of that, we convinced the Prosecutor to dismiss all charges. If Mr. M. were charged as an adult, he would have faced up to 3 years in prison.

CONVICTION SET ASIDE | RESISTING ARREST/TRESPASSING/DISORDERLY CONDUCT CONVICTION EXPUNGED – State v. Ms. H. (DMC No. 9104) (Maricopa County Superior Court No. 2009-161454): Ms. H had been drinking and was at the Westgate Shops over by the Jobing.com Arena. An officer approached her outside of a bar, and she got into a verbal altercation. The officer became angry, and pushed Ms. H to the side of the car. She reacted and then was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct, Trespassing, and Resisting Arrest. We were ultimately able to have charges reduced to a Class 1 Misdemeanor for Resisting Arrest. After that, we were able to have the conviction Set Aside and Expunged.

State v. Ms. A. (Maricopa County Superior Court No. A839517CR): Mr. A. was at a house party on the reservation when police arrived. They entered and arrested her brother’s friend, when she intervened and began asking numerous questions of the police. The officers became frustrated and arrested her, claiming she was obstructing a criminal investigation, committing Disorderly Conducting, Resisting Arrest, and Providing False Information. We were able to talk to the assigned prosecutor on the case, and he “furthered” the case back to police for more information. Ultimately, the prosecutor made the decision to dismiss all charges.

DISMISSED | AGGRAVATED ASSAULT/DISORDERLY CONDUCT/RESISTING ARREST State v. Mr. D. (Maricopa County Superior Court No. 2002-094134CR): Ms. D. was having a party in his back yard with numerous people and had been drinking when he was confronted by a young lady who spit in his face. He pushed her away, and the police were called. Because she was 15 years of age, he was charged with Aggravated Assault. When the police grabbed him to arrest him, he did not realize they were officers (as he was grabbed from behind). He was then charged with Resisting Arrest and Aggravated Assault on Police Officers. We immediately set the case to trial and began describing the facts to the prosecutor involved in the case. Eventually the prosecutor moved to dismiss all charges against Mr. D.

State v. Mr. C. (Maricopa County Superior Court No. 2002012644CR): Mr. C. was at his house when renters let his ex-girlfriend in. She began taking some of Mr. C.’s belongings, and he waved a gun on the back patio. Neighbors called the police, who subsequently arrested Mr. C. We were able to demonstrate that he was justified in his defense of property, and all charges were dismissed.
