The prosecutor dropped the charges within 30 days.
Tyler was freaking out. He was a young professional who had never been in trouble before and now he was looking at a criminal record and possible jail time.
Tyler M. went to a party in West Palm Beach one night. He did the responsible thing by taking an Uber both there and back since he knew he’d be drinking. Tyler ended up getting completely wasted.
He got back to his townhouse in Sunrise, Florida at 4 o’clock in the morning and realized he had lost his keys. Tyler was renting from a private owner. They were doing construction in the community, so Tyler walked over to the construction site, grabbed a brick, and tried to break into his apartment, only the windows were impact glass. His neighbors heard the commotion and called the police. Tyler was able to demonstrate that he lived there, so the cops didn’t arrest him for burglary. However, they did arrest him for Felony Trespass (because he entered onto a construction site) and Felony Criminal Mischief (because he caused more than $1,000 worth of property damage). That’s when Tyler hired our firm.
Tyler was a good guy that made a mistake. We reached out to both the owner of the house and the prosecutor. Tyler had the glass fixed within two days of the incident and paid for it out of pocket. We got the owners to agree to let him stay in the house, and had Tyler apologize to the HOA board, who agreed he could continue to rent there. The owner signed a waiver of prosecution. We also proved to the prosecutor that the construction site on the property did not meet the legal definition of a construction site, making the trespass charge untenable.
