Assaulting a Police Officer - Not Guilty
After being charged with Assaulting a Police Officer, our client came to
the Law Offices of Henderson & Weatherly seeking our legal expertise.
The case was heavily litigated and the strategic decision was made to
take the case to a trial by Jury. Our client was found Not Guilty of all
charges following a lengthy trial after 20 minutes of jury deliberation.
Our client then successfully sued the accusing officer in civil court
which resulted in a settlement in his favor.
Burglary, Aggravated Theft - Not Guilty
This client came to Henderson & Weatherly professing his innocence
after being charged with these very serious offenses that could not only
put him in prison for years, but also always have these offenses on his
record. He was accused of burglarizing and engaging in Aggravated Theft
from his employer. After a trial by jury, the client was found Not Guilty
on all counts.
Drug Trafficking - Dismissal of Charges
Client charged with Drug Trafficking. After a careful analysis of the facts
and circumstances of the case, Henderson & Weatherly found violations of the 4
th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. All alleged illegal evidence and contraband
was deemed inadmissible as evidence due to the fact that the Court granted
Henderson & Weatherly's Motion to Suppress the Evidence. The Court
correctly agreed with our 4
th Amendment assessment that there was a lack of reasonable suspicion for
the traffic stop and/or probable cause for the arrest of our Client. Henderson
& Weatherly used this leverage to later receive a dismissal of all
charges by the prosecuting attorney. In this case, aggressive pre-trial
litigation and strategizing was in the best interest of our Client.
Drug Trafficking - Dismissed
Client charged with Felony 1 drug trafficking. He was arrested in a sting
operation and his vehicle was seized. A plea agreement was worked out
in his favor. After he changed his plea, but before he was sentenced,
police allegedly found a larger quantity of Methamphetamine in his seized
vehicle in a dummy fuse box. Our Client was sentenced on the first case,
then charged again with Felony 1 Drug Trafficking. This case was dismissed
due to aggressive litigation after the Judge agreed with Henderson &
Weatherly that this was a violation of the Double Jeopardy Clause.
Involuntary Manslaughter - Not Guilty
The Law Offices of Henderson & Weatherly represented a female who had
previously been convicted of Involuntary Manslaughter and served 6 years
in prison for this offense. This law office did not represent her on that
case. However, this individual came to Henderson & Weatherly with
a new charge of Involuntary Manslaughter (amongst other charges) this
time the alleged victim was her own Mother. After a trial by a jury of
her peers, this client was rendered a Not Guilty verdict on all counts.
Multiple Charges - Not Guilty
After being charged with 1 count of Obstructing Official Business, 2 Counts
of Assault of a Police Officer, 3 Counts of Resisting Arrest, 1 Count
of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol ( DUI / OVI ) and Driving Under
Suspension, this client made the decision to retain Henderson & Weatherly.
All of these charges were taken to trial. After a short period of deliberation,
a jury of our clients' peers found him Not Guilty on all charges.
Multiple Charges - Not Guilty
A young man was charged with 2 Counts of Rape – Felonies of the 1
st Degree, and 4 Counts of Sexual Battery – Felonies of the 3
rd Degree. He came to Henderson & Weatherly after news of these alleged
crimes were publicized. This young man was accused of these crimes against
a young woman roughly his same age. During the litigation of this case,
this Clients life was on hold and he was facing 26 years in State Prison.
Henderson & Weatherly took the case to a Jury of this clients'
peers. A verdict of Not Guilty was returned on all counts.
Multiple Drug Charges - Charges Reduced
Client was charged in a mutli-count indictment alleging as follows: 3 Counts
Possession of Drugs, 3 Counts Drug Trafficking with a Schoolyard specification,
4 Counts Drug Trafficking with a Juvenile Specification, Possession of
Criminal Tools, and Assembly / Possession of Chemicals Used to Manufacture
a Controlled Substance. After retaining our services, 9 of the 10 Counts
were dismissed and the Client pled Guilty to 1 Count of a REDUCED and
AMENDED charge and was given One Year of Probation.

a Drug Offense, These two were dismissed. 1 F4 – Illegal processing
of drug documents. She was up against 30 counts felony prescription drug
indictment and the case ended with only probation required.
OVI Charge - Not Guilty
A client was charged with a 2
nd OVI / DUI within a six year time period. Henderson & Weatherly was
not consulted on the first case. However, after being referred to Henderson
& Weatherly for the most recent charge of DUI, this client made the
decision to hire us. Henderson & Weatherly was able to have this 2
nd DUI charge amended down to a "zero Point offense", thus significantly
decreasing the burden on our clients' insurance bills. Additionally,
the reinstatement fee of $475 normally associated with a DUI was thrown
out as Henderson & Weatherly was able to successfully argue that an
"administrative license suspension appeal" should be granted
on legal grounds. Moreover, normally even with a reduction of charges
on a DUI, individuals are required to serve the 3 day DIP (Driver Intervention
Program) Hotel weekend. Henderson & Weatherly was able to successfully
argue that this client did not need to attend said program. Additionally,
no license suspension was given. A truly wonderful outcome for the client.
