Child Abuse, Drug Charges
Client was accused of felony child abuse by the child’s mother during an ongoing custody dispute. Upon review of the body worn cameras it was apparent that the arrest for resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance was unlawful. Our client maintained his innocence and we rejected the prosecution’s offer – setting the case for trial and filing a motion to obtain the personnel record for the arresting officers and a motion to suppress illegally obtained evidence. Ultimately, all charges were dismissed without a trial.
Outcome: Dismissed and Sealed
Client was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and narcotic paraphernalia. The Nieves Law Firm successfully litigated the case to drug court, getting all the charges dismissed, and then had the case and arrest record sealed.
