Orignal Charge: First Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct
Final Disposition: Not Guilty Verdict
Client charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct in the 1st Degree. If convicted, client faced a presumptive sentence of 144 months in prison and the considerable likelihood of indefinite civil commitment. During the lengthy jury trial, the State called several lay witnesses as well as a highly paid expert witness who testified against client. Attorney Knuesel was able to discredit the State’s witnesses and convince the jury that the alleged victim was not credible. The jury ultimately returned a Not Guilty verdict.
Orignal Charge: Fourth Degree DWI
Final Disposition: Charges Dismissed/Driver's License Reinstated
Client was charged with DWI and her license was revoked for 90 days following an arrest for DWI. Attorney Knuesel challenged the validity of the stop of client’s vehicle. Officer stopped the vehicle due to his observations of client looking at her cell phone as she executed a turn. After a contested hearing, the Court dismissed the charges against client and reinstated her driver’s license.
Orignal Charge: Felony Possession of Controlled Substance
Final Disposition: Charges Dismissed
Client was charged with Felony Possession of Controlled Substance, Possession of a Hypodermic Needle, and Failure to Signal after a traffic stop. Attorney Knuesel filed a motion to dismiss based on the fact that the officer did not have a reasonable reason to stop client. Officer testified that he stopped client’s vehicle for failing to signal a turn while exiting a convenience store parking lot on to a public street. Attorney Knuesel argued that a driver is not required to signal while turning out of a private parking lot, citing a Minnesota Court of Appeals case to that effect. The Court dismissed all charges against client.
