The first trial of the #InaugurationProtesters ended today in the six defendants being #ACQUITTED of all charges!

The United States Attorney's Office should move quickly to dismiss all remaining charges of the approximately 180 others currently awaiting trial and stop wasting the taxpayers' resources.

Partner Sweta Patel obtained a #NotGuilty verdict this week in DC Superior Court in a #DomesticViolence trial where her client was accused of violating a #CivilProtectiveOrder.

The Judge agreed with Ms. Patel that the government failed to prove the allegations #BeyondAReasonableDoubt wen the only evidence presented were screenshots of missed Facetime messages.

Last week in DC Superior Court, partner Michael Bruckheim won a #PosessionOfOpenContainerOfAlochol trial when the Judge agreed with him that it was improper for the United States Park Police to stop his client without any justification other than an alleged #odor of #marijuana. The Judge correctly found that an odor alone, without any evidence of #CriminalActivity, is not sufficient #ProbableCause to conduct a traffic stop.

Based on this finding, the Judge granted Mr. Bruckheim's #MotionForJudgmentOfAcquittal and found the defendant #NotGuilty.

In 2016 alone, 59,000 United States citizens died from an opioid-related drug overdose -- but is the president responding properly to this national crisis?

There is an interesting case coming out of Chicago, Illinois where female #publicdefenders have filed a federal #civilrights lawsuit claiming that they have been subjected to a hostile work environment because a group of #inmates known as "Savage Life" have organized and directed incidents of indecent exposure, verbal threats, and sex-based aggression against the attorneys. The attorneys claim that the @CookCountySheriff allowed the conduct to continue.

Despite what Law & Order might depict, there may be other options available to individuals charged with a crime other than going to trial. If the #DC #Prosecutors will allow a #defendant to participate in a #diversionprogram, the program can result in a dismissal of the case based on the individual's completion of requirements instead of the #merits of the case.

When a person is arrested for #DUI or #OWI in #DC, they only have a brief amount of time to request a hearing with the #DCDMV before their #DCLicense or #DCDrivingPrivileges is automatically #revoked.

If you or someone you know has been arrested for #DrivingUndertheInfluence in DC, make sure to contact an experienced attorney ASAP to protect your driving privileges.
