        • Hung Jury Leads to Dismissal of Incarcerable Charges.

          In December 2016, a Montgomery County jury deliberated for over six hours before the Court found they were deadlocked and a mistrial was declared.  Mr. Moyse’s client testified credibly that she was emotional following the conclusion of her divorce, and not intoxicated, as was described by three different police officers.  Comments from the jurors, and evaluation of the cross-examination in the first trial led prosecutors to dismiss the DUI offenses, and the client paid a ticket for reckless driving.

Maryland defense Attorney David Moyse obtained a complete acquittal for a client accused of stabbing another man in the eye with a screwdriver. Moyse’s client was found running from the scene with a screwdriver next to him. The bloody screwdriver was tested to have the victim’s DNA, and the victim’s blood was found on the Defendant’s shirt.

      • Jury Acquits Man Facing Second DUI Conviction and Loss of Immigration Status.

A Haitian immigrant facing his second DUI conviction in 3 years was acquitted by a Montgomery County jury on January 20, 2016.

Attorney Rand Lucey

was able to convince jurors that his client – who had been sitting behind the wheel of a running car with a .12 BAC – was simply using the vehicle as shelter and did not intend to drive at the time he was arrested.

The stakes were particularly high for the client, as a conviction would have subjected him to deportation after 25 years in the United States.
