Delivery of Controlled Substance case dropped in Hunt County

Client was a 17 year old high school senior who sold Xanax to a fellow student on campus. That student took the drugs and ended up in the emergency room. Client was identified and expelled from school permanently (and not allowed to attend any public school in the State of Texas). Attorney Corrigan got Client into drug offender education and gathered references on the young man's behalf. In the end, Attorney Corrigan convinced the D.A. to drop the case altogether. Client is on his way to college and is eligible for an expunction on the arrest.

Ellis County Cases

Driving While Intoxicated 2nd dropped to Driving While Intoxicated First in Ellis County Possession of Dangerous Drug Case Dismissed in Ellis County

Client took a combination of drugs including Xanax and Zolpidem and operated a motor vehicle. Xanax was found in the car. Client was obviously intoxicated and had a prior DWI conviction. Corrigan convinced the DA to drop DWI 2nd to a DWI 1st to avoid guardian interlock, got the fine down to $100, and got the Xanax case dropped. Corrigan brought some compelling family history including horrendous medical problems with a loved one and the resulting stack of medical bills. This along with a turn-around in client's employment convinced the DA that client deserved a break.

Theft $50 case Dismissed and Expunged in Tarrant County

Client was arrested for shoplifting at Dillard’s in Hurst. An interview with the client showed that he had a recent seizure before the incident.

Corrigan compiled the medical records as well as client’s resume and character letters. Corrigan convinced the DA to dismiss the charge and have it immediately expunged.

2 Counts of Felony Theft Firearm and Theft $50 No-Billed or Dropped in Tarrant County

All Cases Immediately Expunged

Client’s friend stole guns at a gun show in Fort Worth. The police assumed that he was guilty too and arrested him. Corrigan got all the reports from the DA’s Office, identified testable issues, and setup a polygraph with a highly respected examiner. Client passed the polygraph and Corrigan incorporated the report into his grand jury packet which talked more about client’s background and the circumstances of the offense. The Grand Jury No-Billed the case and the DA was convinced to drop a related misdemeanor. Corrigan also convinced the DA to agree to an immediate expunction, so Corrigan filed a Petition and got the entire incident expunged.
