Another Ewing Law Client charged with Murder 1st Degree and related gun charges dismissed! This was a case involving a young man who had originally been bound over to circuit court only to have his case remanded back to the district court for additional testimony. When presented with additional evidence by our office the government agreed to our client’s charges being dismissed.
A Ewing Law Client was charged with various gun charges after police approached him in a parking lot finding a gun in his vehicle. The issue presented to the court was that the police had seized our client, placing him in the back of a locked police car, before having probable cause to do so. Without probable cause, the police had no reason to search the vehicle–and the statement he gave while illegally detained should not have been used against him. Attorney Ewing filed a Motion to Suppress the evidence of the gun, and suppress his illegally obtained statement. Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Joseph J. Farah agreed, suppression was granted–and the case was dismissed.
In this case, Ewing Law Client was charged with operating a mobile meth lab. Our client was considered a habitual offender and was facing life in prison if convicted. Michigan State Police stopped our client’s vehicle pursuant to a 911 call reporting a suspicious vehicle. Time had passed from the time of the 911 call before stopping our client’s car erasing any belief that there was anything suspicious about our client’s actions. Police stopped the vehicle without reasonable suspicion and Attorney Ewing filed a Motion to Suppress. Genesee County Circuit Judge Richard Yuille agreed that the police did not have reasonable suspicion to stop the vehicle. The drugs and drug making equipment found in the vehicle were suppressed, and the case was dismissed.
Attorney Ewing represented a local attorney and US Army reservist who was charged with embezzling client funds. The case was complex due to the amount of documents and exhibits. After lengthy court proceedings and multiple motion battles–the Circuit Court Judge dismissed the case. Charges were never refiled.
