A Recent Case Win–False Report to a Police Officer Case Dismissed

214-402-4364 (24 hour jail release)

The client was alleged to have called in a false report of person with a knife threatening another person to 911, which initiated a response from the Plano Police Department. Based on the initial facts in the offense report it looked like a certain conviction for the State of Texas, but the State still has the burden to prove its case at trial.

After listening to a copy of the 911 call my client was alleged to have made while at a neighborhood party, it became very clear that the State was going to have a difficult time proving it was my client’s voice on the call–several witnesses would testify my client was intoxicated at the time of the alleged call–the caller’s voice had no slurred speech, or other indicators of intoxication. Knowing it would have issues proving that it was my client that made the false call to 911, especially since there were other people present at the party at the time the call was made that could have also made the call, the State ultimately dismissed the case against my client.

In the final analysis, this was a rushed decision to prosecute the case against my client. The State finally realized after negotiation that the evidence just did not support going forward with the case. The client was relieved and very pleased with the result.
