In the span of 30 days, Board-Certified
Criminal Trial Attorney Dan Geherin of the Geherin Law Group, (GLGMichigan)
fought and won cases for clients all over Washtenaw County.
Here are 5 highlights from the
February 21 2019: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TRIAL ANN ARBOR DISTRICT
T.C. is a young woman who was accused
of Domestic Violence for allegedly shoving and slapping her boyfriend during an
argument. She hired Dan to defend her and
clear her name. At trial, the police
testified that T.C. admitted to pushing her boyfriend, but they conceded under
cross-exam that they did not witness what led up to that response. Dan argued that the prosecutor could not
prove an intent to harm her boyfriend, and the judge agreed. She was found not guilty, and all
records related to her arrest and charge were destroyed.
February 28 2019: SEXUAL
ASSAULT PRELIMINARY HEARING
WASHTENAW COUNTY TRIAL COURT
Dan defended University of
Michigan Honors Student J.D., who was wrongfully accused of a sexual assault of
another college student nearly 18 months earlier. Dan and J.D. reject all plea offers, and the
Preliminary Examination becomes the battlefield. Dan surgically cross-examined the
prosecutor’s witnesses and played video evidence for the judge, both of which
help exonerate J.D. Although the prosecutor need only prove slight evidence of the crime at that
stage, Dan successfully argued that the prosecution didn’t meet its burden. The judge agreed, and dismissed all charges
against J.D., who will not face the excruciating prospect of being sent to
prison and put on a sex-offender registry for a crime he did not commit.
March 11 2019: LARCENY TRIAL ANN ARBOR DISTRICT COURT
Dan represented C.G., a young
professional journalist who was charged with a crime he simply did not
commit. Dan and C.G. conduct several
prep meetings, working together as a team to come up with persuasive evidence
to show he could not have committed the crime.
They prepped character witnesses who would testify that C.G. is honest
and law-abiding. Dan presented this
information to the prosecutor, who finally realized that the charge cannot be
proven. The case is dismissed by the prosecutor
before the first witness is called.
March 14 2019: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TRIAL CHELSEA DISTRICT
Professional Engineer R.M. spent
three days in jail waiting to be Arraigned on a Domestic Violence charge
stemming from an argument with her ex-husband four months earlier. She hired Dan. She and Dan worked hand-in-hand for months to
present evidence about her ex-husband to show the court that he cannot be
trusted. Despite R.M.’s clean record and
lifetime of achievements, the prosecutor
aggressively fought to convict her.
R.M. held up perfectly to cross-examination, presented vidence to show
her ex is a liar, and Dan argued that she is 100% innocent. She was found not guilty, and could get
on with her life—without her ex in it.
March 18 2019: MDOP/ASSAULT TRIAL YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP DISTRICT COURT
L.N. is a young man who works as
an auto repair specialist. After
breaking up with his longtime girlfriend, she falsely accused him of
intentionally smashing into her car and causing her injury. She reported the allegation to police and
CPS, and tried to gain advantage in the custody battle over their son. For months, he was ordered to stay away from
her and his son while the case slowly grinded through the system. He hired Dan to help him defeat these untrue charges. Dan aggressively cross-examined the
ex-girlfriend, prepared him for testimony, and presented evidence of his
innocence to the judge. The prosecutor
threatened, then added, additional charges during trial. The judge saw through the claim, and found L.N.
guilty of all charges. L.N. could
turn his attention to the custody battle, using evidence he and Dan found/used
during the criminal process to help get back his son.
