Today The Castro Law Firm achieved successful results for our clients by way of nolle prosequi (see definition below).

One client was accused of car rental theft in Virginia and another client was accused of sexual misconduct related charges of a minor in Maryland in two related cases.

In both cases, the charges were dismissed by nolle prosequi. We were able to convince the government their cases against our clients were not as strong as they originally thought and that our clients had strong defenses to the charges.

In either case, the prosecutors decided to not prosecute and the matters were dismissed subject to the prosecutor's decision to retry the cases within a reasonable time that does not violate the speedy trial rights of our clients under the 6th Amendment to the Constitution of the United Staes.

Justice comes in many forms, today it came in the form of three nolle prosequi.

Nolle prosequi; Classical Latin: [ˈnolːe ˈproːsekwiː]) is a legal term of art and a Latin legal phrase meaning "be unwilling to pursue", a phrase amounting to "do not prosecute". It is a phrase used in many common law criminal prosecution contexts to describe a prosecutor's decision to voluntarily discontinue criminal charges either before trial or before a verdict is rendered. - Wikipedia

Police may legally obtain the identification of someone ONLY WHEN they reasonably suspect has committed a crime. If the person is not reasonably suspected of committing a crime, they are not required to provide identification, even in states with stop and identify statutes.

“Where rights as secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which will abrogate them.” Miranda v. Ariz., 384 U.S. 436 at 491 (1966).

On March 11, 2016, The District of Columbia Court of Appeals reversed our client's conviction of possession of co***ne, ma*****na and brass knuckles. The Court of Appeals found that the the police arrested our client before there was probable cause to believe a crime had been committed.

The police violated our client's constitutional rights and remanded the case back to the lower court with instructions to suppress all physical evidence found after our client's illegal arrest.

The Court's opinion (link below) narrows and helps to define the bounds of investigatory stops conducted by police.
