Aggravated Assault by DUI Charge Dismissed at Preliminary Hearing

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Yesterday I (attorney Dan Nevins) represented a client in a Berks County District Court charged with three counts of Aggravated Assault by DUI. At this stage the Commonwealth only needs to establish a prima facie case against a Defendant in order for a charge to be held for court. This is a relatively low legal burden, and does not approach the guilt beyond a reasonable doubt standard necessary for a criminal conviction.

I was able to earn a dismissal of one of the three counts at the preliminary hearing by contesting the lack of serious bodily injury to one of the parties. Graded as a Felony of the Second Degree, my client had faced a maximum of 10 years for this particular count. Though we still have work to do to secure a final and favorable outcome in this case, we have taken a significant step in the right direction.

Robbery Charges Dismissed in Berks County PA

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Recently, Attorney Liz Ebner represented a defendant charged with F1 Robbery, F1 criminal conspiracy to robbery and related charges. He was accused of knocking over a chinese food delivery man and punching him in the face while the man was held by a codefendant, and stealing his motor bike. Our client insisted that he was not the one that did this and he had no prior criminal record as a juvenile or adult. His life could have been ruined. We obtained unsecured bail for him and filed a motion for writ of habeas corpus. The defendant was never identified as the perpetrator in court and the charges were dismissed. He was looking at at least 20-40 years in prison if found guilty.
