NG Results: Serious felony charges dismissed

Last week, attorney Otis was able to secure the complete dismissal of a serious felony charge against his client. The client had been charged with a class E felony, for robbery by use of force. The dismissal came after attorney Otis filed a motion to dismiss with the Dane County Circuit Court. In the motion, attorney Otis addressed legal deficiencies in the criminal complaint and successfully argued that the complaint did not establish that his client had committed any crime. The dismissal was a big victory for the client. It not only avoided the potential for a lengthy prison sentence, but because the dismissal was secured so early in the proceeding, it also avoided the stress associated with a lengthy criminal prosecution.
