The defendant’s family hired Mr. Foley to handle the violation of probation and the new charge of Resisting Officer With Violence and Disorderly Intoxication.

Charges: Violation of Probation – Resisting arrest

Process: The defendant was a previously convicted felon and was facing long-term incarceration. He had violated his current probation by picking up the new charges. The defendant fired his old attorney and hired Mr. Foley. The family contacted him and indicated that they believed that he was innocent and he was injured by overaggressive police. Mr. Foley was retained and the office filed in on the case. He received discovery, set depositions, and the case was set for trial

A very important aspect of this case was that the defendant was sitting in custody and had a severely injured leg. While in the court room, Mr. Foley related to the court the severity of the defendant’s leg and requested that the court recommend medical treatment. Note: the court cannot order medical treatment - they can only recommend it. The defendant could not walk. The facts of the new arrest that led to the violation of probation were defendable. The deposition revealed that the defendant was shouting at police as they manhandled his girlfriend at a club. Because he shouted from a distance, the officer gave him a quick warning, but before he could react, they tackled him, Tazed him, and beat him. During this process, the defendant appeared to have his leg broken as a result of police action. The defendant was in jail and the medical treatment was not sufficient. He defendant needed surgery. The state offered time served. Mr. Foley, as well as the defendant, wanted to prove his innocence, however the defendant desired medical treatment more than his day in court. Therefore he accepted the time served sentence so he could exit the jail and go to a hospital to have the surgery completed.

Results: Violation of Probation – Probation terminated and time served on the new charges.
