Criminal Defense Attorney Steven Sessa says that while the commission of any crime can carry serious penalties, the commission of a crime with a firearm in the State of Florida can lead to spending the rest of your life in prison. Florida has a very serious 10-20-Life law that has incarcerated numerous dangerous offenders, but has also served to imprison those wrongly accused.
When a client with such a case contacted criminal defense attorney Steven Sessa with one such case, he made an appointment for a consultation and decided to use Mr. Sessa for his representation in this case. The charges:
- Robbery with a Firearm and
- Burglary with an Assault or Battery in an Occupied Conveyance while Armed with a Firearm
These are two incredibly serious charges that Attorney Steven Sessa knew must be vigorously defended. Sessa didn’t waste any time; he diligently defended his client, poking holes in the prosecution’s case. By the time Sessa was done, the State’s case looked like Swiss cheese.
Attorney Steven Sessa, with his knowledge and experience of the criminal justice system, rules of evidence and knowledge of police procedures, used his communication skills to make the jury see exactly what he knew they should see; that the State of Florida has no case against his wrongly-accused client.
On August 18th, 2017, After deliberations were done, the jury returned the rightful verdict of “Not Guilty” on both charges.
