Result: motion to dismiss allowed (all charges). Mandatory jail time avoided.
The Commonwealth claimed that my client was operating under the influence of drugs and tried to strike numerous police officers with her vehicle. I was able to successfully argue that my client was incompetent at the time of the alleged offenses. Further, I argued that she will never be competent to sit through a complete trial and that jail or hospital confinement was not warranted. The judge agreed and she was allowed to go home.
