Our Columbus law firm represented a 33-year-old Springfield man who was indicted for Improperly Discharging a Firearm into a Habitation (a second degree felony), and Discharging a Firearm in a Prohibited Premises (a third degree felony). He confessed to the crime and faced a potential 8-year prison sentence.
We filed a well-researched and fact intensive motion to suppress our client’s statement and the search of his house based on Fourth and Fifth Amendment grounds. Our client was offered several different plea “deals,” each of which carried lengthy prison sentences. On the day of our scheduled suppression hearing, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss both charges. Our client is now a free man.
Our client credited our firm’s work with the dismissal, concluding that without the extensive research and drafting of the motions to suppress, the case would never have been dismissed.
