Case 5: Robbery PDF Print E-mail
My client was charged with robbery when he allegedly took a purse from a woman in a parking lot. Charges for the robbery had been brought in Bartow County, but my client had already pled to theft by receiving, misdemeanor amount, in Cobb County. The items that Cobb County alleged were in his possession were the same items from the robbery in Bartow County.

I filed a motion to dismiss the robbery charge based on double jeopardy. The judge agreed with my argument and dismissed the robbery charge against my client.
