M.C. – This was a rather interesting case. Originally charged as a felony cruelty to animals and misdemeanor discharging a firearm in public. The U.S. LawShield member shot and killed a dog that had killed his cat. We had a hearing on our Motion to Dismiss that was denied, however, at the beginning of the hearing the judge was not going to allow a defense under Florida Statute §767.03, which specifically says that it is a good defense to the killing or injuring of a dog, if the dog “had been” or “was” killing any domestic animal or livestock. Though she denied the Motion to Dismiss, the judge was convinced to allow the defense and the jury would have received an instruction telling them that it was a good defense to the killing of the dog in question if they found it had been or was killing the cat. The prosecutor only a few days before trial made an offer the client decided to accept, believing it was in his best interest to accept. In this case the matter concluded with a plea to 2 misdemeanor charges and a withhold of adjudication on both counts, meaning no criminal conviction.

A.M. – Notice of suspension of processing of CWFL application received by client. We were successful in getting her CWFL issued.

M.D. – Client charged with Battery. We successfully convinced the prosecutor to file a No Information dropping the charges.
