NEVER CHARGED: SEXUAL ASSAULT

In People v. R.L., the defendant was accused of committing sexual acts upon his young children. He was not yet charged but he wisely retained Mr. DeCarolis after learning of the allegations made to police.

Mr. DeCarolis immediately delved into the background of both the children and their mother, quickly discovering that the allegations were simply a ploy by the mother in an ongoing custody dispute with R.L.. This information was presented to both the police and the District Attorney's Office and found to be so credible that the CHARGES WERE NEVER EVEN FILED.

CASE DISMISSED PRIOR TO TRIAL: RAPE 1ST DEGREE

In People v. S.J., the defendant was accused of raping a woman and faced up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Mr. DeCarolis was hired at a late stage just prior to trial, however he immediately conducted an extensive and vigorous investigation of the accuser. It was revealed that this was the fourth time the accuser had made rape allegations against someone and that the three prior instances had all been false. Mr. DeCarolis presented this compelling information to the District Attorney's Office and they quickly DROPPED ALL CHARGES against S.J. on the eve of the trial.

NOT GUILTY: DWI

In People v. J.S., the defendant was accused of driving while intoxicated based on a breath alcohol content of 0.13. This was well over the legal limit of 0.08. 

Mr. DeCarolis took this case to trial and the jury found J.S. NOT GUILTY of the misdemeanor DWI, and instead only convicted the defendant of the violation of DWAI. This distinction spared J.S. from a far more severe punishment and also avoided a criminal record (a DWAI is a non-criminal offense).

CASE DISMISSED BY GRAND JURY: MURDER 2ND DEGREE

In People v. J.S., the client was accused of intentionally killing an individual with a handgun. Upon investigation it was quickly revealed that this was a clear case of justification as J.S. was acting in self-defense when he shot the gun.

Mr. DeCarolis assisted in preparing J.S. to testify before the Grand Jury. Ultimately the Grand Jury declined to pursue homicide charges of any kind against the defendant. The homicide charge was dismissed less than 2 weeks after J.S. was originally charged.

REDUCED: PROBATION

In People vs. C.C., the client was charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 2nd Degree after her boyfriend shot off a pistol in the parking lot at a wedding. The handgun was unlicensed and illegal in New York and because it belonged to C.C., she was indicted by the Grand Jury.

A CPW2 conviction generally mandates a minimum sentence of 3.5 years in prison, however after extensive negotiations and the unique circumstances brought to light by Mr. Nobles, C.C. received 5 years of probation with NO JAIL TIME.

CHARGE: Assault 2nd with Mandatory State Prison
RESULT: REDUCED to Assault 3rd Degree with Restitution

In People v. M.C., the client was charged with assault for hitting someone over the head with a beer bottle in a bar fight. Because the client had a prior felony conviction, pleading guilty or being convicted would mean a mandatory state prison sentence.

Because Mr. Nobles discovered issues with the case, he was able to negotiate a REDUCED plea to assault 3rd degree, a misdemeanor, with no jail or probation, and only $2,400 restitution.
