We were able to convince the prosecutors to drop the charges, and Richard made it on his family cruise.
Richard had been living a whole new life in North Carolina and was supposed to go on a family cruise when he found out about the warrant. Now he was worried that he was going to miss the cruise and have to do time in jail.
Richard W. was a 60 year old grandfather who lived in Florida back in 2006. At that time his car broke down, so he purchased a Lincoln Navigator at a police car auction. On his way home, driving the new Navigator, he gets pulled over for speeding in Fort Lauderdale. The cops then find cocaine in the car. Richard hired an attorney and maintained his innocence (after all he had just purchased the car). He didn’t get along with the attorney, and the attorney quit. Nothing happened with the case, and Richard eventually moved to North Carolina, got his PhD, and thought the whole ordeal was over. But in 2018 he found out that there was a warrant out for his arrest and that he had to come down to Florida to resolve the situation. Richard first called the original attorney, who didn’t remember anything about the case. Then he found and hired our firm.
We were working on a tight deadline with this case because Richard had important travel plans. We had one month to figure out the situation. We pulled the file from archives (it hadn’t even been digitally uploaded), which took two weeks. In the next two weeks we reviewed the file, found major holes in the case and knew we could beat it at trial. We called the prosecutor and demonstrated all of the mitigating factors, and our defenses. There was no way Richard would have known there were drugs in the car, which was a crucial element to proving the prosecutor’s case. We filed a motion to remove the warrant and reinstate the bond.
