State v. Ms. E (DMC 15445) – Felony Arson and Felony Criminal Damage – Dismissed – Maricopa County Superior Court (Case No. CR2018-151423): Ms. E had suffered from PTSD and was on various medications. She had taken two of those medications together and went to sleep, when she awoke was panicked because she thought her dog was locked inside of the car. She smashed the car in order to get into it, and realized her dog was not there. She then called her husband, who informed her that he had the dog.
During this ordeal, she had somehow set the car on fire. We were able to show the prosecutor that she was having a medical episode, and that her husband (the co-owner of the car) did not wish for charges to be pressed. Ultimately, the State agreed to Dismiss charges against Ms. E. Originally, she was facing a large amount of prison time.
