Armed Robbery with Firearm
Client was picking up some jewelry with some other friends. When they approached the shop, a man came out and attempted to take their money. As a result, one of the individuals in my clients car pulled a gun and shot at the person multiple times, striking him once. The state filed the case and the client was looking at life in prison. However, Mr. Schwartz conducted a thorough investigation of all witnesses and co-defendants. As a direct result, Mr. Schwartz was able to establish that his client had minimal to no involvement and was nothing more than an innocent bystander who had no knowledge that there was a gun and played no role in the shooting. As a result, the case against Mr. Schwartz’ client was eventually dropped. The 3 other co-defendants who were in the same car and represented by the public defenders office all served prison/jail time followed by lengthy probation. Mr. Schwartz’ client got his case dismissed due to extreme efforts of Mr. Schwartz.
