The headlines—Arizona Republic

          On 6/5/13 the Arizona Republic ran a front page story on a snitch that the DEA attempted to use to convict one of our clients in a drug case. We found out that this confidential informant had committed perjury in numerous cases from 1985 through 2000 and had been fired as a confidential informant before being brought back by the DEA. We filed a motion to dismiss the case and sent copies to the press and every government official we could think of.  The day after the story ran on the front page the Arizona District Attorney dismissed the case. 

4/1/08 “Cocaine Baby’s dad indicted in gambling ring”

          We had a client that was indicted as part of a sports book gambling ring. Sheriff Joe was also attempting to forfeit his home, cars and other property.  To add insult to injury, the state attempted to make his children wards of the court because it claimed that one child had gotten into some cocaine in his home. The criminal charges were dropped when the court granted our motion to suppress the wiretap evidence that was the key to the case. The state returned all of his property and paid some of his attorney’s fees when the charges were dismissed. The juvenile court action was also resolved to the satisfaction of all of the parties.  All in all, a good outcome for our client.

5/9/08 “Rapper DMX arrested for drugs and animal cruelty”

          DMX hired us when he was initially arrested in Maricopa County for a variety of charges.  It was a difficult case had needed the full attention of the client. Unfortunately DMX had other ideas, showed up late for court and ended up with a warrant for his arrest. I withdrew as his lawyer, other lawyers finished the case and DMX ended up in jail for quite some time. This case was a lesson about the client needing to listen to the people he hires to represent him.
