Tampa Bay Criminal Defense Case Updates Week Ending 10/6/2017
As seasoned Tampa Bay criminal defense attorneys we are always joyous when we succeed in defending our clients. We win a large amount of criminal cases for our clients in Tampa Bay and although we are no less pleased when we win one case or the other, there are always those case verdicts that truly stand out.
This is particularly true when we represent clients who have been charged with violent crimes such as attempted murder or domestic battery. As with the first case mentioned below, the penalties if convicted of murder or attempted murder are severe. Also, a person’s reputation is often tainted when they are arrested for certain crimes such as domestic abuse or child abuse. Getting a not guilty charge or reduced charges can calm the waters, somewhat. When we can make a difference in the lives of our citizens and their loved ones, it means the world to us– and them. If you are searching for an attempted murder defense attorney , DUI defense attorney or a traffic ticket attorney you can trust us to provide you with the very best criminal defense possible. We never stop fighting for our clients in Tampa Bay, Florida. Let us fight for you.
Charge: Attempted Murder
Verdict: Not Guilty
Last week, Kelly McCabe went to trial in a case where our client was charged with Attempted Murder. Kelly was able to successfully argue to a jury that the victim in the case was making up parts of the story. The jury found our client Not Guilty of Attempted Murder, which saved our client from going to prison for life. Our client was found guilty of a misdemeanor battery and was sentenced to the time he already served in the Pinellas County Jail.

Charges: Domestic Battery
Verdict: Reduced Charge/Fine
This week, we were successfully able to argue on behalf of two different clients to have their charges reduced. First, a client who was charged with Domestic Battery had the charge reduced and the only condition was to pay a fine.
Verdict: Reduced Charges
Second, a client charged with Driving Under the Influence. We were successfully able to argue the facts of his case did not warrant a DUI conviction and his charge was reduced to a charge of Reckless Driving.
