COMPUTER TAMPERING and USE of TELEPHONE to HARASS NOT CHARGED – State v. Mr. R (DMC No. 7962) (Tempe Police Department DR08-025032): Mr. R had recently broken up with his girlfriend and was upset. He went on to her “Myspace” webpage and changed her password. He also posted several inappropriate pictures of her in various states of undress. He then went and text her cell phone threatening to send even more pictures to her relatives.

We contacted the detective after Mr. R’s arrest for Computer Tampering per ARS13-2316(A) (S) and Telephone Harassment per ARS 13-2916 (A) and opened up a dialogue. We provided the Detective with a new password so his girlfriend could change the Myspace page. In addition, we agreed to forfeit his cell phone. The detective contacted his ex-girlfriend, and she agreed that was significant punishment. No charges were brought against Mr. R.

EXTORTION NOT CHARGED; NOT GUILTY/COMPLETE ACQUITTAL at BENCH TRIAL: HARASSMENT – State v. Mr. S (DMC No. 9286) Jan. 27, 2010 (McDowell Mountain Justice Court JC2009-107805): Mr. S had done some electrical contracting work for a neighbor across the street. The neighbor had not paid him approximately $2,300, and Mr. S went over to speak with the neighbor about it. The neighbor’s house was currently in Escrow to be sold, and Mr. S allegedly stated that if he didn’t get his money he was going to contact the buyer and make sure that “the sale did not go through”. Initially Detectives were investigating Mr. S for a Theft by Extortion charge, however the prosecutor’s office declined to file those charges. They did, however file a charge of Harassment. We went to Bench Trial and presented all evidence and cross examined the state’s witnesses. After the state had finished their case and then rested, we moved for a “Directed Verdict” judgement, and the Judge agreed. The case was Dismissed on the spot at that point.

CONVICTIONS SET ASIDE | 3 COUNTS POSSESSION DRUG PARAPHERNALIA, 2 COUNTS AGGRAVATED HARASSMENT and 1 COUNT FRADULENT USE of a CREDIT CARD CONVICTIONS SET ASIDE – State v. Mr. R. (DMC No. 8726) (Coconino County Superior Court CR00-99; CR00-281; CR00-581; CR01-419; CR01-420): Mr. R. was a drug addict at the time he received all of these criminal charges in a 1 year time span.  After satisfying his prison term in all conditions of his probation, he had remained drug free and employed for 5 full years.  We were able to convince the court to set aside the convictions of all 6 criminal charges.  Mr. R. was able to successfully move on with his life.

NOT CHARGED | HARASSMENT – State v. Ms. S. (DMC No. 8615) (Bureau of Land Management Investigated): Ms. S.’s husband worked for the Bureau of Land Management, and she suspected him of having an affair with a co-worker.  She ended up calling the co-worker approximately 50 times in order to dissuade the co-worker from having contact with her husband.  Bureau of Land Management investigators then questioned her, and she then secured our services.  We were able to work with investigators and grant assurances no further phone calls would be made to the co-worker.  They had agreed to not bring any charges against Ms. S.

DISMISSED | TRESPASS/HARASSMENT – State v. Mr. B. (DMC No. 10186) (Phoenix City Court 4358013): Mr. B. went to his ex girlfriends house (she was also his ex employee) in order to speak with her.  The relationship had ended tumultuous, and she filed a lawsuit against Mr. B.  When police were called, she claimed that he had trespassed and had been harassing her.  Although he was arrested and charged, we were able to convince the Prosecutor to dismiss the harassment charge and allow Mr. B. to attend counseling in exchange for a dismissal of the trespass also pursuant to diversion.

HARASSMENT/STALKING DISMISSED – State v. Mr. H. (DMC No. 10350) (Payson City Court 2011CR-12227): Mr. H. has issues with his next door neighbor due to a barking dog who wouldn’t be quiet.  The conflict had been going back and forth, and Mr. H. had set up cameras to monitor his neighbor’s back yard to show the dogs barking.  The neighbor took a photo of Mr. H. looking at him with binoculars, and phoned the police telling them that he was being harassed and placed under surveillance.  Mr. H. was cited with harassment and stalking, and we were able to get the case dismissed in exchange for Mr. H. removing the camera equipment and doing some diversion classes.
