Clients Not Guilty for Possession of Marijuana

  Our clients were cruising along when they were abruptly rear-ended. A deputy arrived on the scene and said he smelled marijuana. He ordered the two clients out of the vehicle. One client admitted that she had been smoking a hemp cigarette. Eventually, after an illegal search, the deputy found what he thought was marijuana in two places in the vehicle. As a result, the two individuals were charged with Possession of Marijuana in Forsyth County. Our client owns several hemp shops and maintains an ABC permit. A conviction for Possession of Marijuana meant they’d likely lose their ABC permit and face huge financial losses. So, they turned to criminal defense attorney Clarke Dummit for help. You Can’t Tell by the Smell At trial, the deputy was testifying about his training and experience in smelling and identifying marijuana based upon the smell and appearance. During a [...]

Charges: Client was charged with Assault on a Female and Interfering with 911 Call Case Result: Dismissed County: Forsyth What Happened A client called the police when his wife became aggressive, grabbed him, and pushed their three-year-old child. When the police arrived they instead began investigating him. He insisted to the police he did not do anything, but they did not listen and continued to accuse him. At the end of the investigation, instead of helping our client, he was arrested and charged with Assault on a Female and Interfering with 911 Call. The police officers spoke with the client's wife, who claimed that our client had struck and hit her on the head. There were no visible signs of injury to her head, but with an assault, there isn't always physical evidence. These situations are a he-said-she-said, and the side that is better prepared for trial is [...]

Bringing a Firearm onto Courthouse Property

Our client was incorrectly charged with bringing a firearm onto courthouse property in Davidson County. In fact, our client had a concealed carry permit and was arrested for lawfully having a firearm on the parking lot beside the courthouse. A Dummit Fradin criminal defense attorney recently represented this client and successfully got the case voluntarily dismissed. Getting the Charge Dismissed The deputy perceived danger and acted quickly. The deputy, however, failed to observe the law. Thus, our attorney filed a pretrial motion to dismiss. He spoke with the deputy and the prosecutor and explained that he was not contesting the facts of what happened. Instead, he was focusing specifically on an entirely legal argument. When the NC General Assembly drafted the prohibition of firearms on certain government property, their statutory intent clearly did not prohibit lawful concealed carry on property outside of the courthouse building. Our attorney also [...]

Father Attains Child Support with 50/50 Custody

Attorney: Erica Jackson Type of Case: Child Support Case Result: Father Granted Child Support with 50/50 Custody County: Forsyth County Attorney Erica Jackson recently represented a father in a child support case in Forsyth County. The client held 50/50 custody of his children and now needed Erica's help in getting a fair child support arrangement. Months before the two parties even separated, our client took medical leave from his job while he had shoulder surgery. The parties then separated and our client did not go back to his job after medical leave. Going back meant he'd have to work 2nd shift from 3:00 pm to 2:00 am without anyone to care for his children. So he was forced to take a different job making less money. Accurately Imputing Income for Fair Child Support Although he no longer worked there, the county was trying to impute the first, higher-paying [...]

Not Guilty – DWI, Failure to Reduce Speed

A client was charged with DWI and failure to reduce speed. He had left a restaurant in the late evening after having two sizable beers and a bit to eat. While driving around a corner, he went off the road. The police responded within minutes. Our client was put through the battery of field sobriety tests and was arrested. He eventually blew a 0.14 at the station in downtown Winston Salem where he was charged with DWI and failure to reduce speed. An unsuccessful motion was made regarding the accuracy of the field sobriety test; however, importantly, the testimony of the officer who testified was clearly not credible. This credibility issue was brought to the forefront by DWI attorney Michael Fradin. After a full trial on the merits, and the officer’s credibility continually challenged, Michael Fradin successfully argued to the Forsyth county court that the state had not [...]
