Case Victory: Craig’s Conundrum
Craig was charged with 12 criminal charges, eight which were felonies, including two counts of strangulation and suffocation, two counts of intimidating a victim through the use of force, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm by a felon. Attorney Stangl was hired to help Craig in what appeared to be a hopeless situation and likely prison sentence. Attorney Stangl filed a Motion to Dismiss Count One through Six and Count Twelve of the Criminal Complaint and based upon the motion the prosecutor elected to dismiss all twelve criminal charges. Although the State refiled some of the criminal charges, the Motion to Dismiss filed by Attorney Stangl resulted in the dismissal of six felonies. Upon being recharged the client faced two felonies including being a felon possession of a firearm and false imprisonment. The case was resolved shortly before trial and even though the State possessed evidence showing the defendant’s DNA on the firearm in question, that charge was nonetheless dismissed. Ultimately the defendant ended up with two disorderly conduct convictions and a Class A misdemeanor bail jumping conviction, an extraordinary result in a case that looked hopeless from the start. This case is proof positive that no matter how serious or how many charges a defendant faces, Stangl Law Offices, Attorney Stangl can help.
