Recent Cases

The following is a list of recent cases successfully resolved by the Law Office of Chase Brown:

State v. S.L. 
     Outcome: Two counts of aggravated robbery dismissed after hearing
     Date: December 12, 2015

State v. P.W.
     Outcome: Boating Under the Influence (BUI) charge dismissed
     Date: November 17, 2015

State v. M.H.
    
Outcome: Domestic Violence charge dismissed after hearing
     Date: August 8, 2015

State v. B.S.

     Outcome: Jail time and felonies avoided for multiple re-arrests on felony drug charges
     Date: April 14, 2015
     Description:   My client was currently on one year's probation for simple possession drug charges.  During his probation he picked up a felony drug charge (Possession with Intent to Sell).  After making bond he picked up a subsequent felony drug charge  days later (Possession with Intent to Sell).  Posting bond once again, he was re-arrested on an additional felony drug charge (Possession with Intent to Sell).  Hanging over him as well was a Probation Violation for each new arrest.  My client was facing multiple years in jail on consecutive sentences for each felony.  In the end, my client avoided jail time all together and no felony convictions on all charges. 

State v. M.D.
    
Outcome: Domestic Violence charge dismissed
     Date: March 31, 2015
     Description:  Domestic abuse is a serious crime.  The only thing more serious than the abuse itself is being falsely accused of it.  Investigating the nature of the injuries in this case weighed heavily against the credibility of the complaining witness's allegations, to put it lightly.

State v. A.L.
     Outcome: Felony aggravated assault charge retired after preliminary hearing
     Date: May 28, 2014
     Description:  In Tennessee, we are cloaked with the protection of the law of self-defense when we find ourselves in certain
     situations. My client was charged with aggravated assault after he brandished his pocket knife to defend himself. The
     attacker was med flighted to a Nashville hospital and survived. At the preliminary hearing, we established the necessary
     facts to justify the use of lethal force after a reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury had occurred. The case
     against my client was ultimately retired a few months later. Important takeaway: A victim isn't defined by his injuries, he is
     defined by his actions.

State v. S.B.
      Outcome: Not Guilty on Felony Drug Charge and Driving on Revoked License
      Date: April 18, 2013
      Description: In Tennessee, multiple convictions for simple possession of drugs can lead to a felony charge, if arrested
      again. My client was pulled over for a minor traffic infraction and the police subsequently asked to search the car. After
      finding small amounts of a controlled substance, the officers arrested my client, took her downtown, and charged her with
      felony drug possession. This case was dismissed due to two reasons. First, the procedures the officers used to gain entry
      into the car were not supported by the law. Secondly, the quantity of the alleged contraband reported by the officers was
      not the quantity that the officers actually found on my client. Take away: There are two sides to every story. There are also
      procedures that must be followed.

State v. R.P.
      Outcome: State makes generous offer to settle case after defense rests jury selection
      Date: October 8, 2012     

      Description: My client was in custody and charged with Aggravated Assault. If found guilty at trial he very likely would
      have served 15 years in jail. The State refused to make a reasonable offer so we proceeded to trial.  After two hours of  
      picking our jury, the State lost confidence in its case and made a generous offer my client couldn't refuse. He was made
      eligible for release in only a matter of months. Takeaway: Never underestimate the power of persuasion during jury
      selection.

State v. R.S.
      Outcome: Aggravated Burglary charge reduced and subsequently erased from client's record
      Date: August, 2012
     
Description: My client's aggravated burglary charge was a great example of police's ability to abuse its discretion by   
      overcharging someone. Supported by the facts, I successfully reduced this charge to aggravated criminal     
      trespass with the opportunity to have it erased from my client's record after certain tasks have been performed.


State v. Jose Olivo
      Outcome: Aggravated Child Abuse/Neglect charges reduced to simple misdemeanor, Client released from custody
      Date: June 13, 2012
      Description:
A parent's worst nightmare. My Spanish-speaking client and his wife were wrongfully accused of two counts
      of aggravated child abuse, each charge carrying a mandatory 15-25 year sentence at 100% time to serve if found guilty.
      My client's infant baby of 6 months had a hairline fracture at her ankle (medically known as metaphyseal fracture of the
      right distal tibia). The state alleged that one of the parents must have intentionally inflicted this injury and refused to believe
      that this could be the result of an accident. On multiple occasions my client was interrogated without a necessary Spanish
      translator. After a year of dedicated medical research, interviews with expert witnesses, and calculated negotiations with
      the prosecutor, my client was released from custody on a simple misdemeanor, and all charges were dropped against the
      mother. A family ripped apart for one year were finally reunited. Baby "B" is a healthy, happy, beautiful little girl who is back
      with her mother and father.
