Case No. 2129516 – Joseph C.

DISMISSED May 18, 2017

Joseph was a Canadian citizen being sponsored for an RN residency in the Texas Medical Center. On New Year’s Eve he was at a bar with friends when one was detained by police. Joseph tried to record the interaction but was told to leave and issued a trespass warning. When the friend did not reappear Joseph worried about police brutality and sneaked back onto the property and hid to record the incident. Immigration & his consulate were notified of his arrest. We worked aggressively for this Dismissal to save him from deportation and protect his hospital residency.

Case No. 2050067 – Jessica H.

After a surprise party and while intoxicated Jessica and her friends jumped the fence of a co-worker, not at home, to go swimming in his pool at night. The homeowner was alerted and told police Jessica did not have permission to be there, that he had told her to leave and that she refused. Jessica told her friends she had spoken with the homeowner and had gotten permission so no one else was arrested. Using prior evidence we proved constructive permission had been given to Jessica sufficient for a Dismissal.

Case No. 1807579 – Brandon D.

CRIMINAL MISCHIEF
Case No. 1807790 – Brandon D.

DISMISSED

At the time of his arrest Brandon was on probation for a Disorderly Conduct/Firearm case. This complicated the two new charges but we were still able to successfully defend Brandon and argue both cases to pre-Trial Dismissals: After Brandon broke up with his girlfriend she threatened to hurt herself. We obtained cell phone records with Affidavits to document the proximity of the outcry phone call to him to his uninvited appearance at her doorstep where he allegedly broke the door frame trying to get in to check on her safety. When her father unexpectedly arrived home, Brandon fled the scene as he had been assaulted in the past by his ex’s father. We documented the tense situation between Brandon and Complainant’s father to explain why he fled after trying unsuccessfully for an hour and a half to gain access to the home. A difficult part of our defense was proving sufficiently that Brandon did not cause the obvious and severe damage to the door observed by police – including cut metal and weatherstripping – but that Complainant’s father did so in vindictive retaliation – underscoring Brandon’s motivation to flee the scene. We used Complainant’s testimony in further verification of her mental state, her threats to Brandon, and why she had good reason to lie to police to corroborate her father’s false story.


CRIMINAL TRESPASS
Case No. 1402812 – Matthew M.

DISMISSED

In an unusual case, police arrested our client for trespassing at the scene of the arrest of his mother. Ordered away by police, our client returned to the scene when he heard his mother crying. Our client has mental disabilities but would nevertheless have been prosecuted as a competent adult had not Mr. Haggard taken him under his wing, obtained medical records, and proven to prosecutors that our client was not a mentally-competent adult. Mr. Haggard handled this case pro bono in sympathy for the family and in consideration of the system’s lack of justice in arresting and prosecuting this young man.

Thank you for being with me in the courtroom that dark day in my life. My family and I witnessed God’s love, caring and understanding working through you. We were so proud to see you stand up and fight for my rights in our judicial system. Thank you for your expertise, experience and professionalism. If the world had a few more people like you, it would be a better place to live in. I also want to thank God for allowing me to cross paths with Mr. Haggard. [Edited for clarity.]
