Court Compelled to Dismiss the Charge

The allegations, in this case, were that the client went to her boyfriend's apartment, where she gave him a loaded handgun. The boyfriend then immediately used that gun to shoot himself in the head while in the client's presence.

When the police and emergency services arrived on the scene, the client was immediately arrested. However, the client maintained her innocence. Attorney David Sachs argued that the evidence supported his client's innocence only, and not her guilt. Through his zealous representation, the Court was compelled to dismiss the charge.
