Hager & Schwartz Secures Not Guilty Verdicts for All 6 Client Charges
Hager & Schwartz, P.A. and our Fort Lauderdale criminal defense lawyers are known for taking on challenging cases for our clients and fighting with the full extent of our knowledge and resources. We firmly believe in the importance of the presumption of innocence all criminal defendants are deserved and granted through their constitutional rights. No matter the weight of the charges or might of the prosecution, we can stand up for our clients and represent them fearlessly and with determination.
We recently secured a monumental success for one of our clients, who was facing six serious criminal charges. He had been accused of armed sexual battery, armed kidnapping, armed burglary battery, two counts of aggravated assault firearm, and battery. If he was convicted for all six charges at the end of the trial, he could have been sentenced to life in prison plus 71 years.
Another law firm first represented our client shortly after his arrest. That other attorney actually told our client – or who would become our client – to accept a plea deal, even though he knew he was not deserving of a guilty verdict. This would not bring justice to the case, and so it would not do.
Tirelessly fighting for our client’s rights and never overlooking even the smallest of details, we prepared his case for a hard-fought trial. It took three days for the trial to conclude, and the jury deliberated for 30 minutes. We are more than proud to be able to say that our client was found not guilty on all six charges.
After being held in jail for 20 months without bond, our client is able to go home to his family with a clear name and future. This is exactly the kind of case result that keeps us focused and driven at Hager & Schwartz, P.A. Knowing that we have helped better reshape tomorrow for a client facing extreme penalties if convicted wrongfully is the greatest reward of our careers.
