    A 32-year-old man was arrested on multiple charges early Friday after police said he crashed a U-Haul moving truck into a St. Pete Beach hotel. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, the man drove the UHaul truck into the Hotel Zamora located at 3701 Gulf Boulevard just after midnight.   Officials said the man then drove off from the area. He was arrested about two hours later. When deputies arrived there was substantial structural damage to a hotel parking garage drop ceiling. Witnesses provided deputies with a description of the moving truck. Shortly afterward, deputies stopped a 10 foot U-Haul truck with roof damage, driving north on Gulf Winds Drive at 64th Avenue in St. Pete Beach. Officials said the man told them he attended a party at Hotel Zamora. After the party, the man was driving his passenger to her car in the parking garage when he struck the parking garage drop ceiling with the roof of the U-Haul truck. The man apparently said he fled…

    A spoliation letter helps keep evidence from being lost or destroyed. It makes obtaining evidence for a case much easier by putting the evidence holder on notice. The letter is given to the involved parties and ensures that they must do their due diligence to keep key evidence from being destroyed, tampered with, or misplaced. The most important part of any personal injury, workplace injury, or trucking accident case is to gather meaningful evidence to be used in court. This vital step will ensure that proper information and facts pertaining to the accident can be preserved and prepared to fight for justice. A Spoliation Letter is All About Preserving Physical Evidence In the video above, Chris Hammons, Founding Partner at Laird Hammons Laird, explains the benefits of acquiring a spoliation of evidence letter. “As soon as we sign up with the client, we’re finding out the contact information for the trucking company,” he said. This is important, because,…

    In many criminal defense cases, one of the most important aspects of the case may be getting (or failing to get) evidence excluded. One way in which you may be entitled to suppression is if the police stopped you but did not have a reasonable suspicion to do so. One circumstance in which that can happen is when the description of the suspect the police use contains only a race and very general descriptive information. Arguing successfully these types of Fourth Amendment issues is something that can often benefit from the skill of an experienced Maryland criminal defense attorney. A recent case involved a robbery in Gaithersburg. As is normal, dispatch sent out a call about the robbery and information about the suspects. Initially, dispatch simply stated that the suspects were “three black males.” One officer, who was in the area, responded and spotted three black males in the area of the apartment where the robbery took place. According to the officer, the men he…

La sociedad espera que el gremio sea el que sancione a aquellos abogados que no se rijan por los estándares éticos esperados. Cumplir con esta obligación de control resulta central, pues la confianza de la sociedad en la profesión se materializa en la confianza que un cliente deposita en su abogado; aspecto fundamental para asegurar un adecuado patrocinio que permita el acceso a la justicia y la tutela de derechos” El anterior es una de los párrafos del artículo que comparto.

    From this tweet by Keith Lee, I learned of this fascinating Complaint filed on Sunday in the New York County Supreme Court. Lee takes note of the first two paragraphs of the Complaint, which are admittedly colorful:1. The date, September 7, 2017, is a date that shall live in infamy in Staten Island history. On September 7, 2017, the circus came to town. The Defendant, DENNIS W. QUIRK (“QUIRK”) in his individual and personal capacity exploded on the courthouse steps as part rabid-dog and part carnival-barker, in a dangerous, intentional, outrageous, and malicious manner. QUIRK caused serious, substantial, unconscionable, intentional, and malicious harm to the Plaintiff, MICHAEL J. PULIZOTTO (“PULIZOTTO”), in the center of the public square – the steps of the Richmond County Courthouse – all to advance QUIRK’s own personal and political agenda.2. The date, September 7, 2017, shall always and hereafter be known as “THE DAY OF…

    Numerous Maryland criminal laws changed on October 1st, but no change may have more of an impact in courtrooms around the state than the new sentencing rules for technical violations of probation. In theory probation is a convenient and fair tool for a judge to punish a defendant without imposing a jail sentence. While many defendants complete their probation term without incident and then move on with their lives, a large percentage don’t fair so well. Probation violations are too common in Maryland, and many should never happen in the first place. A probationer that is arrested for a new criminal or jailable traffic offense can expect a violation of probation to be initiated, as the officer really has no choice. But new law violations (also known as rule 4 violations) account for less than half of all VOPs. The majority of violations are technical, and these are the type that have been addressed by the legislature. A technical violation is a violation of a condition of…

    Mark Godsey, founder and director of the Ohio Innocence Project and law professor at the University of Cincinnati, spoke to Wisconsin Public Radio on Monday about his new book: Blind Injustice: A Former Prosecutor Exposes the Psychology and Politics of Wrongful Convictions, which was released by the University of California Press last week. Godsey described his transition from tough-on-crime federal prosecutor to the director of an organization dedicated to getting innocent people out of prison. Godsey told WPR that, early in his career as a prosecutor, he did not believe that people could be convicted of crimes they did not commit. But when teaching a law class in 2001, Godsey was asked to supervise the Kentucky Innocence Project. At the time, students at the project were investigating the case of Herman May, who was wrongfully convicted of rape in 1989. “I asked about the case and they told me how he got convicted and I sort of did a big eye-roll and was just like,…
