  • Case Dismissed
    4th Amendment Violation
    The police report in this case glazed over the actual arrest of client.  Even so, complete review of the officer's chest-cam video showed a significant constitutional violation.  Despite the apparent violation, the prosecutor refused to dismiss. After filing a motion to suppress illegally obtained evidence, Stolte Law, LLC questioned the officers on the stand and impeached their version of events.  The court agreed that local police violated client's 4th amendment rights. ? The prosecutor appealed the case, but we prevailed.
  • Reversed on Appeal
    Aggravated Burglary Conviction

    On appeal, Attorney Adam D. Stolte argued that, in order to be convicted of aggravated burglary, a person has to break into a home when a person is present.  In this case, when client entered the home, no other person was present. Upon leaving, the homeowners arrived, causing client to return into the home with them. The Court of Appeals agreed that there was no legal basis to support an aggravated burglary charge.

  • Case Dismissed
    Assumed DUI

    During our initial interview, questioning of client revealed a chronic medical issue. The condition can present symptoms similar to DUI. After reviewing the videos, it was apparent that the medical condition disguised itself as a DUI. Along with supporting medical research, Stolte Law, LLC presented the prosecutor with his trial plan to the prosecutor which included cross-examination of the officer's failure to recognize the issue and medical expert testimony. The DUI charge was subsequently dismissed.
