A case that I have been working as the second chair on with a good colleague of mine here in Elkton, Maryland has finally been closed! This has been a case I’ve been working on with Edward Richitelli since opening my practice last year. It’s been one of the more difficult cases to handle, as it’s one where there has from the onset been a true belief that our client had nothing to do with the incident that brought rise to the charges.
When you believe your client is actually innocent, the stakes are much higher with less room for error.
After a number of successful hearings to suppress evidence unlawfully and unconstitutionally gathered by the State, as well as an unsuccessful attempt for the State to appeal one of those rulings, this past week the State finally opted to drop the charges against our client.
The local newspaper has provided their take on the state’s dropping of these charges. See the Cecil Whig article here.
