Dismissed – Two States, Two Police Departments, One Client’s Charges Dismissed

Client, a South Carolina resident, is drinking with a family member when an argument breaks out. Client leaves, and the relative calls the SC police. SC police begin to chase our client, who crosses the NC state line into Mecklenburg County. The SC police contact the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, who stop our client. Before the case gets to trial, Ms. Rynne convinces the Charlotte DA and the arresting officer that since the officer never actually saw our client operating the vehicle on a North Carolina road, the elements of a DWI could not be proven and the case was Voluntarily Dismissed. Best of all? Since Ms. Rynne secured the dismissal before the trial started, our client never had to go to court.

Charges Dismissed – Respect for All People Under the Law

Police respond to a Charlotte domestic violence call one night. They see that the husband has scratches on his face and arms, and begin to question the wife. What the officers do not see is the bruising on the wife’s body, particularly her back, where she has been beaten by the husband. The wife takes her culture’s beliefs seriously, and so she may not show the officer the wounds on her back because she can not remove her clothing in the presence of a man who is not her husband. The officers believe she is using this as an excuse for her attack on her husband but does not believe that she has been a victim, so she is arrested for assaulting her husband. She spends two days in jail. Department of Social Services (DSS) is called because they have an 8 year old child. After DSS investigates, [...]

50B Order Renewed – Keeping Our Clients and Their Loved Ones Safe

A Charlotte Client who needed to renew the 50B (domestic protection order) that had been taken out against his ex-wife. In the year since the original 50B order, the ex had been making many threatening statements, attempting to defraud an insurance company by posing as his current wife, even referring to our client’s new fiancé as his mistress. This unstable behavior led attorney Barbara Rynne to modify the 50B motion to include the fiancé as a protected household member. Laws governing domestic protection orders do not address whether a fiancé may or may not be protected by the order, but Ms. Rynne was able to show the judge that the fiancé needed protection as much as our client. Ms. Rynne also was granted a two year 50B order, when these are often only granted for one year. In addition to the safety Ms. Rynne secured for our client [...]
