RECENT NEWS & CIVIL AND CRIMINAL TRIAL UPDATES:
January-February, 2018 – STATE v. GISSENDANNER, TRAVIS – BLF Client was charged with 3 serious felonies, Robbery 1st (a class A felony carrying a penalty of 10 years to LIFE in prison) , Kidnapping 2nd (A class B felony carrying a penalty of not less than 2 years and up to 20 years in prison) and Assault 2nd (A class C felony with a max of 10 years in prison). Accordingly, if convicted the BLF client was facing serious prison time, but after vigorous defense and negotiation for the client, the BLF was able to negotiate with the District Attorney’s office in Dale County Alabama for ALL three (3) felonies to be dismissed in exchange for the client to plead to one misdemeanor (assault 3rd). The client was very happy with the outcome wherein he received a small fine, no jail time and no probation.

January – March 2017 – STATE VS. JACKSON, JAMES HUNTER – BLF, LLC’s Client, Mr. James Hunter Jackson was indicted for a class A felony (carrying a sentence of not less than 10 years and up to life in prison if convicted) but the attorneys, Jason and Bob Brogden, Esq. here at the BLF, LLC negotiated a plea bargain deal so that Mr. Jackson’s charges were reduced to a mere MISDEMEANOR, in which he accepted. Based on all the factors, including a legitimate claim of self-defense, both sides felt this was an appropriate plea bargain. At sentencing, Mr. Jackson was not remanded to jail/prison but he was placed on 12 months of “community corrections” which is a heightened form of probation with zero incarceration. He will live and stay at his home, never spending a night in jail or prison, but be closely monitored compared to those on probation. The client was happy to have this case resolved down to a simple misdemeanor with no time in jail/prison imposed when initially he was indicted by the Grand Jury of Dale County for MURDER, a Class A Felony.

December 2016 – The Brogden Law Firm, LLC and most notably Robert H. Brogden, Esq., was retained to represent the former City Clerk for the town of Samson, Alabama on a two (2) count indictment by the Grand Jury of the 33rd judicial circuit wherein she was indicted with two (2) class A FELONIES for theft of property from the City. After much legal work, discovery review by our firm and negotiation with the District Attorney, Mr. Brogden was able to secure a very favorable “deal” wherein ALL the felony charges were dismissed and the former court clerk simply plead out to a mere misdemeanor in order to get the case behind her. Our client received a suspended sentence, 2 years of unsupervised probation, no fine or cost was instituted and never spent a day in jail! Another happy client and successful outcome for BLF, LLC!
November 2016 – The Brogden Law Firm represented a young gentleman, “Z.G.”, who indicted by a grand jury for Assault in the second degree (a Class C Felony) in Coffee County Circuit Court stemming from an alleged shooting wherein the victim was allegedly shot twice by our client. Jason R. Brogden and Josh Holcomb handled this matter together where they filed a motion for “Pre-trial Immunity” and conducted a hearing on self-defense, which is a newly enacted mechanism in our self-defense statute which allows for such a pre-trial hearings before Defendants have to go through a lengthy jury trial. Our client asserted he was defending his person, was in imminent fear of his life and his girlfriend at the time. After a conducted lengthy and very productive immunity hearing before Circuit Judge, the Hon. Judge Thomas Head, the District Attorney’s office contacted Mr. Brogden the very next day and offered to reduce the felony charge to a mere MISDEMEANOR (Assault 3rd) and grant the young man “YO” or Youthful offender status (so the file was sealed) with no fine, no court cost, no probation and a short suspended sentence so that he never spent more than an hour in jail when he was indicted and booked in and bonded right out. We believe the client was very satisfied with the outcome and the long hours our firm worked on his case, weekends included.
