Officers patrolled a parking lot known as a hot spot for a male prostitution. Deputies witnessed the suspect quickly exit the vehicle of another male and begin walking towards his own vehicle. After conversations between the police and the suspect, an officer mentioned the burs on the suspect’s socks. The defendant claimed the burs came from urinating in the woods; the same woods known to authorities for male prostitution. Officers arrested the defendant for loitering and prowling.
RESULT: The defense immediately entered into negotiations with the State over the fate of the client. The attorney convinced the prosecution that their case lacked enough evidence to secure a conviction. The defense prevailed with the State filing a notice of no information and DROPPING all charges against the client.
