Criminal Mischief LawyerCRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Case No. 2066283 – Christopher G.

DISMISSED June 21st 2016

This was a mutual road rage incident in Houston in which Complainant sideswiped Chris, disabling his own car. He claimed Chris then got out and smashed his windshield with a crowbar. Houston Police arrived and did note several points of impact on the windshield, broken glass near the wipers, and no other cause to account for it such as airbag deployment. Our legal defense team fought this case for several settings using evidence and witnesses we had gathered. When it was time for trial Chris was going to plead – he was a UPS driver and could not risk a conviction if we lost at trial. We hammered our case one more time and won a dismissal for his criminal mischief charges just prior to trial.


CRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Case No. 1684249 – Julius C.

DISMISSED

Julius’ angry girlfriend called police and told them he had broken an expensive item maliciously, causing collateral damage to her flooring. Julius maintained it was his daughter who had done it, accidentally, and that, because the girlfriend was angry at him and didn’t like his daughter, she called police and lied, saying he had done it. The girlfriend went the whole nine yards, asking for a Protective Order – but in typical fashion later regretted it. We obtained an Affidavit of Non-Prosecution from her, being careful not to violate the Protective Order until we had it lifted. We were then able to negotiate restoration of her valuables and repairs to her floor.


CRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Case No. 1535108 – Beth C.

DISMISSED

A witness observed our client ram her vehicle into the automatic gate of a gated community. Two other men were involved. Extenuating circumstances, which Mr. Haggard investigated and proved sufficiently, helped obtain this Dismissal.


CRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Case No. 1494297 – Gerrad H.

DISMISSED

Gerrad was exiting a sports bar when he gave a door window an open-handed slap of exuberance after a Cowboy’s victory. Although the window was thick, with wires running through the glass, and Gerrad’s hand sustained no injury, bouncers maintained his slap had enough force in it to break such a window. Presentation of this theory as being quite improbable and the lack of solid, videotaped evidence were among our aggressive arguments in bringing this case to Dismissal.


CRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Case No. 1406923 – Thomas F.

DISMISSED
Our client went to the apartment of his ex-girlfriend and broke a window with his hand, a door frame and punched a hole in the door leaving blood stains in evidence after fleeing the scene in his vehicle once maintenance arrived.


CRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Case No. 1360037 – Angela M.

DISMISSED

This was a case of damage to a large planter box in a lobby construed as having been done with malicious and criminal intent. Mr. Haggard aggressively defended our client’s innocence in part by proving that her action which caused the damage would not reasonably have been expected to produce the result that it did.
