Sometimes a driver becomes aggressive and angry and wants to harm another driver – one way or the other. Attorney Jordan’s client became the target of such a driver. He was followed to his home by a man who was in a fit of road rage. The man pulled up to the front of his home and then drove off. Attorney Jordan’s client thought that was the end of it. Instead, he found himself facing five serious charges. He called Attorney Carl Jordan.

While Attorney Jordan’s client was a college graduate with a master’s degree who worked for the state, it was difficult for the jury to look beyond the charges the client faced. Juries characterize defendants by the incidents that bring them to court.

The Prosecution Painted the Defendant as a Crazed Person.
Attorney Jordan portrayed the Defendant as a Family Man who was a victim.

During the Third Circuit Court jury trial presided over by Judge Lawrence S. Talon, Attorney Jordan described the events leading up to the situation. He helped the jurors understand how the incident unfolded. He also made sure the jury understood that the defendant had a career that would be lost if he was convicted of a felony. Furthermore, the defendant would not have done anything to jeopardize his job and his ability to provide for his family. Additionally, the defendant had never had any criminal proceedings bought against him.

After a five day trial, the jury found Mr. Jordan’s client not guilty of four of the five charges. The fifth charge of assault and battery was reduced to a misdemeanor. Mr. Jordan’s client was fined and sentenced to one year of probation.

How An Attorney Can Help
Attorney Jordan’s client faced five felony charges, including a 750.84 Assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. A person who is found guilty of committing this crime may be imprisoned for up to 10 years and/or fined up to $5,000.00.
