FELONY BREAKING AND ENTERING - DISMISSED
Client was charged with breaking and entering after forcing his way into his friend's apartment after a night of drinking. Police alleged that the Client committed a felony when he broke into the apartment to obtain his car keys and belongings that were left in his friend's apartment during the night out on the town. Attorney Ken Barrett reviewed the evidence and successfully argued that since the Client had permission from the friend to spend the night at the apartment the elements of a breaking and entering could not be met beyond a reasonable doubt. The case has since been dismissed.
