False Accusations of Anti-Semetisim in Courtroom not believed by WIse Judge and Prosecutor

This is gossip. Its what happenned recently on a case I had. It made me think wow, some people will say anything. Had a client that had a failed relationship and did something stupid by stealing something from that person. My client was caught. He gave a full confession and our goal was diversion. Diversion is punishment without the longtme stigma. AFter you do the punishment the case is dismissed. Pretty good thing for less serious crimes. However, victm must agree. They did not. They wanted my client to be buried under jail. In a hail mary attempt, I requested a hearing for court ordered diversion. The judge was abouyt to make ruling in our favor and victim spoke up. They claimed that my client was a racist. That specifically he made anti-semetic remarks. Listen to the story. Thank God for fair minded judges and prosecutors as this could have gone really bad. They system sometimes gets it right and in this case. I had a remorseful client that did something stupid after a few drinks. Cleint stole. The victim changed the story an made up facts to acquire money. Basically said, the item taht was stolen was double teh price it really was and then objected to sentence. I say two wrongs dont make a right.

Roger P. Foley got me reinstated. Also he got my COS waived, and got me to still be terminated off of probation on my expected termination date. I feel very comfortable with the decision my lawyer made for me. Also I would refer him to anyone who has a criminal felony or misdemeanor case. Jamar
★★★★★
Roger is a very compassionate person, he truly cares about his clients. He helped me with my case and was there for me every step of the way even if it was just reassurance that I needed. I would recommend him to anyone, he is absolutely the best! Cassandra G.

I think your firm did a great job on 3 cases that were 28 years old. The results are better than expected. I truly appreciate the hard work that you and your firm put forth in obtaining the results that we did on this case. Jim
