Client was accused of punching, kicking and dragging a pregnant woman on the ground. Court documents stated that all of these actions caused the alleged victim, a pregnant woman, to have a miscarriage. The range of punishment the defendant could have received was 5-99 years in prison. At the close of the prosecution’s case, the court granted Jeremy’s motion for judgment of acquittal, and declared the defendant not guilty.
Probation Revocation Avoided
The client was accused of using a firearm during the course of a robbery and placed on probation. Prosecution moved to revoke probation on the basis that the client had allegedly driven without a license, was not paying his probation fines and fees, and not completing required community service. Those allegations, if proven by the prosecutor, could have resulted in revocation of the client’s probation and a sentence of 5-99 years in prison. At the conclusion of the hearing, the court denied the prosecutor’s motion to revoke probation and the client was allowed to remain on probation.
Certificate of Appealability Granted
Federal prisoner sought and was denied relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. Client retained Jeremy to assist in obtaining a certificate of appealability (COA). After requesting a COA from the appeals court, a COA was granted. A COA permits a defendant to present argument to the appeals court on a particular issue. If the court is persuaded by that argument, the court may afford relief. This case remains ongoing.
Rule 35 Motion Filed
Client cooperated with the Government. Client retained Jeremy after the Government failed to move for a reduction in Client’s sentence based on her cooperation. Jeremy contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and after doing so, the Government moved to reduce the client’s sentence under Rule 35. The court ultimately granted the motion.
Halfway House Recommendation Granted
Client retained Jeremy to obtain a recommendation from her sentencing court that she receive 12-months of halfway house from the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Jeremy filed a motion requesting the recommendation from the court and the motion was granted.
