It’s not hard to run afoul of the law in Wyoming, where many law enforcement officers are inadequately trained and prosecutors are overzealous.
The smallest conviction can damage your reputation, cause you to lose certain licenses and certifications, smack you with substantial fines, and even put you in jail.
But a skilled criminal defense attorney can examine your case, find procedural flaws and holes in the prosecution’s case, and get the charges against you reduced or dropped altogether. Gillette defense attorney Steven Titus understands your legal problems. He’ll develop a strategy to protect your rights, reputation, finances, and freedom. Let’s look at some recent case results that showcase his defense skills:
· Client M.M. was charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance (Ambien). Because this was M.M.’s fourth DUI charge in 10 years, it was being charged as a felony and he was facing jail time. M.M. was originally represented by the public defender’s office, but he was unhappy with the way they were handling the case and chose Steven Titus to defend him. Titus brought in an expert witness who authored a report stating that M.M. was experiencing an episode of “zombie driving,” and that there was no way he could have been conscious when the DUI occurred. Attorney Titus presented this evidence to the district attorney’s office and convinced them they would not be able to meet their burden of proof at trial. M.M.’s felony DUI charges were dropped and he plead guilty to a misdemeanor non-DUI traffic offense.
· Client C.H. was pulled over for speeding in Cheyenne, Wyoming and a subsequent search found 72 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle. As a result, C.H. was charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance and Felony Intent to Deliver. Knowing Fourth Amendment protections against illegal search and seizure, Steven Titus realized the traffic stop was illegal, and therefore, the search and the contraband that was found were inadmissible as evidence. Steven filed a motion to suppress the evidence and the district attorney dropped all charges against C.H.
· Client B.W. in Newcastle, Wyoming, was charged with three felony counts of sexual abuse of a minor. During the pre-trial conference, Steven filed numerous motions and objections against the State’s case, including objections to the State’s proposed jury instructions, and the State’s imprecise timeline of when the acts were alleged to have occurred. The court agreed with Mr. Titus and the State dismissed the case against B.W.
