Violent Crimes Case Results

Internal Reference #1018

Violent Crimes Weapon Charges

Facts: On 5/510 at approximately 0900 Hrs., Officer B was advised by dispatch that an unknown male later identified as the defendant driving a blue Honda SUV pointed a black handgun at the victim during a road rage incident. While responding to the scene Officer B observed a Honda SUV matching the description given by dispatch going east bound on NW 62 nd Ave. Officer B then initiated a traffic stop in the 1200blk of NW 62 nd St to further investigate the situation. For officer safety, the officer then asked the driver of the vehicle the defendant to step out of the vehicle. Officer B then advised the defendant of his Miranda Rights. Officer B then asked the defendant if he had any weapons in the vehicle and he stated, “Yes sir, I have a pistol permit”. Officer B then asked the defendant where the weapon was and he stated “I have a handgun in a black bag on the front passenger seat”. Officer B then checked the black bag on the front passenger seat, and found a back Glock 23, 40-caliber handgun in a black holster. The black bag was open and there were 10 hollow point rounds in the gun’s magazine. Officer T then brought the victim to the scene to conduct a show up, and the victim positively identified the defendant as the individual that pointed the gun at him. The defendant was placed into custody and transported to the detective bureau to be interviewed by Detective B. The victim was also interviewed by Detective B and he indicated that he wishes to prosecute. The defendant was later transported to the police station booking facility to be charged accordingly. The handgun was submitted into the evidence unit. The defendant was arrested and charged with Agg Assault (784.021-1AC).

Results: Mr. Foley was able to convince the state attorneys office to change the charged from Agg Assault with firearm (3 year minimum mandatory sentence) to Reckless Display of a Weapon. The win in this case was that the defendant started off with a minimum three-year prison sentence, and the charge was then changed to Reckless Display of a Weapon and then that charge was ultimately dismissed. No Felony, No Jail, No Conviction. DISMISSAL

I was charged with Domestic Violence few years ago and I was referred to Roger Foley from a family member! Roger is a BULLDOG! He was great and very aggressive in helping me beat this bogus case. Case was dismissed! He was on top of everything until the end!! Thomas
My wife (Mother of Stepson) and I Hired Mr Foley to represent my stepson in a minor criminal case. We would highly recommend as it is obvious to us That Mr Foley Genuinely cares and wants to do the Best he can for you which he did for us. Also has a great rapport with all parties in the courtroom..... Steve
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
