NOT GUILTY OF CRIMINAL SALE OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE IN THE THIRD DEGREE

On July 11, 2012, at about 7pm, a plainclothes detective was in an unmarked police car with two other detectives when one of the detectives saw in individual wearing gym shorts and sneakers approach MC. The shirtless man and MC were acquaintances from the neighborhood. Instead of a handshake, they gave each other a "fist pump".

Thinking he just observed a narcotics transaction, the vehicle immediately drove to where the pair were standing. The officer ordered the shirtless man to open his hands. When he did, he was holding 4 Vicodin pills. The shirtless man was arrested for possession and MC was arrested for the sale. MC refused all deals that were offered and insisted he was innocent.

At trial, the officer who claimed he saw a drug deal go down eventually, after thorough cross examination, admitted that from where he was, he couldn't tell if there was any exchange. Photos of the entire crime scene were submitted into evidence by the defense and it was clear that the office fabricated his story. In fact, he even acknowledged that he did not see one hand even touch the other, that he guessed he saw a sale.

MC was found NOT GUILTY of all charges.

On September 9, 2013, HB had an altercation with a person he had known for years right across the street from his house in the middle of a sunny day. It was alleged that the altercation got so heated that HB pulled out a gun and shot the complainant at close range in the stomach. A neighbor, who knows HB and the complainant, testified that he heard gunshots, looked out his window and saw HB walking away from where he heard the shots holding a handgun. The complainant, while driving himself to the hospital after being shot in the stomach, identified HB in his 911 call as the person who shot him.

HB faced 25 years in prison. As a result of a thorough investigation, relentless cross-examination of the complainant, and compelling testimony of HB who took the stand on his own behalf, the jury rendered a verdict of NOT GUILTY.

A witness who lives two houses away from the complainant told police that he saw SG exiting the complainant's home carrying a box that matched the gun box which contained the stolen gun. The witness also identified SG because he knew her. The witness then directed the police to a home where SG often stayed. The homeowner subsequently directed police to a bag allegedly owned by SG containing SG's personal property, including her mail. Inside of that bag was also a 9milimeter sub-machine gun. The homeowner then directed police to the officer's gun in another area of the home.

SG faced over 30 years in prison. Trial resulted in a verdict of NOT GUILTY of all charges.

On October 20, 2008, two people were shot during a gunfight between rival gangs. The shooting was widely covered by the media. One of the victims was a five-year old girl.

Several days after the shooting, TP was arrested and gave a detailed confession to shooting the little girl. In his confession, he even apologized for shooting her. His confession, however, was coerced and false.

TP was facing 25 years in prison. Two detectives testified at trial about the confession and the means in which it occurred. Effective cross-examination of the detectives uncovered glaring inconsistencies regarding how the so-called "confession" was taken, which resulted in a verdict of NOT GUILTY on all charges.

This case is far from over. The civil suit for false arrest and malicious prosecution is pending.
