Criminal Defense Results
CASE DISMISSED AFTER MOTION FILED
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY – Ten felony charges of possessing child pornography were filed against a 35-year-old Pine Island Man after sexually explicit images were discovered on his phone. The ages of the individuals in the images were suspected to be between 12 and 17. The case was dismissed due to the inability to verify the individuals’ ages.
DOMESTIC ASSAULT – Wife of client claimed physical abuse by the client during their marriage. The wife admitted during the trial that she still loved the client and fabricated allegations because he was cheating on her and eventually married the other woman. She testified this “broke her heart.”
5TH DEGREE CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE – Client was a passenger in a motor vehicle that police stopped for a routine traffic violation. Defense attorney Christa Groshek made a motion to dismiss on the grounds that the client’s constitutional rights were violated when he was searched without probable cause following the tow of the car. The court dismissed the case, ruling that methamphetamine found in the client’s pocket was inadmissible due to the illegally obtained evidence.
FELONY ASSAULT ON A POLICE OFFICER – Client charged with macing a police officer. Officer testified at trial that client “maliciously interfered with an arrest.” Client testified that he was trying to help officer subdue person who was resisting arrest.
MISDEMEANOR CARELESS DRIVING – Client was driving on Interstate 94 during the winter. Conditions were cold with clear roads. A large accident scene appeared suddenly ahead, with a tractor-trailer jackknifed in the road and half a dozen other cars already in the ditch. Client’s car spun partly out of control because of “black ice,” but client managed to maneuver around and through the accident scene, hitting no other cars, but ended up in the ditch. Officer saw client go into ditch, approached client with gun drawn and ticketed him for careless driving.
FELON IN POSSESSION OF A FIREARM – Police responded to reports of shots fired in north Minneapolis and within minutes stopped the vehicle in which the client was a passenger. They found a gun under the passenger seat and accused the client, who was the passenger, of possessing the gun. The client testified that the driver of the car threw the gun at him when police stopped the car. Client did not want to possess the gun, so he threw it under his seat.
