Good afternoon, everybody! Douglas Cohen with Peak Legal Services LLC atop of the parking garage by the Denver District Court. It’s a beautiful afternoon in sunny Colorado. I’m happy to report two great outcomes for our clients in the past week.
One, a DUI case totally dismissed at motions after we were able to show the police officer had no reasonable suspicion to stop our client. I am extremely excited for my client – he’s a father, he’s a great guy, he’s not a drinker, and he was stopped inappropriately. It was a great outcome. I’m glad the judge listened to the evidence and took it into account.
The other one is a very serious felony matter where my client is looking at up to lifetime in prison. We got a not guilty verdict on a couple of counts and a mistrial on some other counts.
Now it’s up to the DA to decide if they are going to retry some of those counts but a partial not guilty verdict and even a hung jury in a case like this is extremely rare. Kudos to my client and all the hard work of my team.
