Two men were arrested in a car after police claimed they had seen the driver (Mr. Sprowls client) throw a quantity of cocaine out the window and on to a city street.

Once the evidence was suppressed, the D.A. had no choice but to dismiss all criminal charges. The defendant ended up pleading guilty to a speeding ticket!
A few months after Mr. Sprowls client was arrested during the execution of a search warrant, Mr. Sprowls got the felony charges dismissed.

Mr. Sprowls used his extensive knowledge of search and seizure law and the facts of the case to convince the D.A. that the case could not be proven against his client and persuaded the prosecutor to dismiss the charges.
The police arrested two boys and charged them with felony Criminal Mischief, claiming the boys had caused damage in excess of $500.00 to a local municipal park. The boys denied the charges.

Never accept the word of the police as truth -- they lie and exaggerate just as much as anyone else.

Within a month of his arrest, Mr. Sprowls got the case against his client dismissed.
Two men were arrested in the City of Newburgh and charged with multiple Class D Felonies, including Grand Larceny in the Third Degree and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Third Degree. Mr. Sprowls' client had a lengthy criminal record going back over thirty years with a prior felony conviction. The D.A. was out for blood and insisted that the two men would go to state prison for these crimes.
Of course, Mr. Sprowls could represent only one of the defendants. After investigating the case and researching the applicable law, Mr. Sprowls advised his client to refuse all plea offers and to remain ready for trial.
The co-defendant was subsequently indicted and his case was transferred to County Court where he is looking at a state prison sentence.
Mr. Sprowls' client is now a free man. Because Mr. Sprowls knew the law and the facts of the case, all of the charges were dismissed and the defendant is home with his family.
