Juvenile Written Threat to Kill Case Dismissed in Palm Beach by Defense Attorney David Tarras

Palm Beach Juvenile Written Threat to Kill Case Dismissed

Outcome of Written Threat to Kill Case in Palm Beach:

Matthew, a middle school student, was apprehended by the Palm Beach Police Department after he sent a message threatening to shoot someone who had been cyberbullying him via the social media platform, Snapchat. With assistance from the Rossen Law Firm and defense attorney David Tarras, Matthew was able to get his case dismissed, and his record sealed.

Client Concerns During Written Threat to Kill Case in Palm Beach:

Although Matthew only wanted to scare off his bully and bring his harassment to an end, his message nonetheless amounted to a second-degree felony. In the State of Florida, the charge of making a written or electronic threat to kill or injure someone carries penalties of up to 15 years in prison, 15 years of probation, and $10,000 in fines for an adult. For someone as young as Matthew, however, the consequences of his actions meant possible time in a juvenile detention center, removal from his current school, and a record that could follow him for a lifetime.

Facts about the Written Threat to Kill Case in Palm Beach:

After accepting what seemed to be a harmless friend request on Snapchat, Matthew quickly found himself receiving a barrage of insults meant to humiliate him over a crush that he had. The harassment continued electronically over the course of a month, and after reaching his wit’s end, Matthew made a comment that turned his life upside down. Soon after, Matthew was picked up and arrested by a Palm Beach police officer.

Strategy to Fight the Written Threat to Kill Case in Palm Beach:

The best course of action given the circumstances of Matthew’s case was to undertake a “plea and pass” agreement (P&P). Through this specific plea deal, the defendant (Matthew) pleads guilty and agrees to meet specific requirements as outlined by the court. If the defendant meets these requirements, their felony case is dismissed. For Matthew and his family, this meant an avoidance of a prolonged trial and additional fees, and an ability to finally put the whole ordeal behind them. And finally, by sealing his record, (meaning that this charge would not show up on background checks), attorney David Tarras was also able to help Matthew achieve his best future in which he has no criminal record.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
