Double trouble-charges detainers dismissed. Imagine being at your friends house having a good time when you are assaulted by a stranger. You suffer cuts to your head and body losing your shoes in the scuffle. Even worse when you try to defend yourself with a firearm it accidently discharges and the assailant steals your money and your gun. Bad night. The night gets worse when you have to go to the hospital and then the police charge you with crimes. Worse night.
That is exactly what happened to a client recently when he was charged with Violation of the Firearm Act (VUFA) carrying a firearm without a license and three counts of recklessly endangering another person (REAP).
The client hires Montgomery County criminal lawyer Thomas Kenny of Kenny, Burns & McGill to protect his interests. First Attorney Kenny arranges a turn in for the client at the Lansdale police station. At the Preliminary Arraignment, Attorney Kenny secures unsecured bail for his client so he can go home and rejoin this family.
Next the Criminal defense team at Kenny, Burns & McGill roll up their sleeves and go to work. Conducting an intensive investigation the team determines that the so-called victim has open strangulation charges listed for trial and previous offenses for DUI.
After all the hard work is done, all charges are withdrawn by the Commonwealth, Client and Attorney Kenny come out victorious!
Next up in Philly justice, client gets three detainers dropped on him for various alleged technical violation of his probation. Worse yet, the PO thinks that the client has open arrests charges. Client hires Philadelphia Criminal Lawyer Thomas Kenny of Kenny, Burns & McGill who quickly realizes that the PO has not done her homework and in fact has confused Kenny’s client with another probationer. Kenny’s client has a job working at an outreach center and is working hard on his sobriety getting regular mental health treatment and drug treatment. At the initial gagnon hearing with the trial commissioner, Attorney Kenny gets all three detainers lifted and client goes home to rejoin his family.
