CHARGES DROPPED

Client was charged in an aggravated felony case with Threats To Kill, and held without bond pending trial - primarily due to allegations of purported victim that she had identified client as having previously committed a notorious unsolved "drive-by" shooting at a block party wherein she had been shot and other persons had been killed. Was able to counter the credibility of the complainant and convince a judge to release client pending trial. Fought with government over discovery of information helpful to the defense. After completing a lengthy and thorough investigation, including obtaining witness accounts and derogatory information on complainant, and presenting most of the information to the government, United States Attorneys Office first dropped the charges to a single misdemeanor count, then dismissed case entirely on the day of trial.
