Our client was charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Felon. The client had been shot in the leg and reported to the hospital for treatment. Law enforcement claimed the client was fabricating his story about being shot during an attempted robbery.
In pushing for trial, Attorney Dimmer convinced the State that the opinions of law enforcement about observed powder burns on the client’s pants and skin could not confirm, unequivocally, that the shot was self-inflicted.
Result: Case dismissed.
Lesson learned: Push for trial. Speak to the Prosecutor. Attention to details.
