Case Results

Below are a few outcomes from cases that Mr. Sprowls has handled:

Case #1

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. At a pre-trial suppression hearing, Mr. Sprowls successfully argued to the judge that the evidence should be suppressed. 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!

Case #2

A few months after Mr. Sprowls’ client was arrested during the execution of a search warrant, Mr. Sprowls got the felony charges dismissed. The defendant had been found inside an apartment with prescription pills, marijuana, cocaine, and drug paraphernalia in the room next to where the defendant was standing. 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.

Case #3

A high school-aged boy and four of his friends were arrested and charged with multiple felonies, including Burglary in the First Degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree. If convicted of the Burglary Charge as an adult, Mr. Sprowls’ client could have been sentenced to anywhere between 5 and 25 years in state prison. In October, 2008, after extensive investigation and interviews with witnesses, Mr. Sprowls got the case dismissed and his client’s bright future remained intact.

Case #4

A parolee was arrested and charged with multiple serious felonies stemming from two separate incidents. He was held and charged with Rape in the First Degree, Burglary in the Third Degree, Grand Larceny in the Third Degree and numerous other charges. If he had been convicted of the Rape charge alone, he could have been sentenced to up to 10-25 years in state prison and if he were also convicted of the Burglary, he could have received 2-7 years consecutive to the sentence of the Rape charge because the incidents were separate and unrelated. Mr. Sprowls had both cases dismissed.

Case #5

Two men were arrested and charged with felony marijuana possession and Assault in the Frist Degree for allegedly slashing a man who had tried to rob them of their weed. Mr. Sprowls’ client was a Jamaican national and, in addition to being deported, he could have gone to state prison for 5-25 years if he had been convicted. Instead, Mr. Sprowls got the Assault charge reduced and dismissed and his client pleaded guilty to a low-level marijuana charge. He paid a small fine and went home to his family – no jail time and no deportation.

Case #6

The defendant had been arrested in the City of Newburgh and charged with Assault in the First Degree, a Class B Violent Felony. It was alleged that he stabbed another man in the eye with a knife, but the defendant maintained that he acted in self-defense. He had an extensive criminal record which exposed him to the enhanced penalty of 25 years to life in prison if he had been convicted. After Mr. Sprowls conducted a jury trial lasting one week, the defendant was acquitted of all charges and walked out of the courtroom a free man.
