8-6-18: Daniel Rothman showed that an investigating officer had not spoken to numerous witnesses on an alleged Felony assault causing serious injury. After contacting other witnesses, recorded statements were given by the defense to the state. Instead of a likely win at trial, the client decided to take an offer from the state to plead to 2 simple misdemeanors and get a deferred judgment. This will lead to the whole case being expunged instead of the possible five year prison sentence the client was facing.

 

7-27-18: Daniel Rothman argued a motion to suppress alleging that the officer had no reasonable grounds to detain a driver for field sobriety tests. The Court agreed and granted the motion to suppress. The OWI charge as well as the child endangerment charges must be dismissed due to the Court’s ruling. The DOT must reinstate the client’s driving privileges and take the OWI off their driving record.
