Erick Cruz obtained the dismissal of resisting arrest and criminal mischief charges against his client after pushing the case to the brink of trial.  The client was arrested after an Uber driver claimed she was out of control inside his car.  When the officers arrived they arrested her without determining what was happening.  The client was charged with criminal mischief and resisting an officer and taken to jail.  

Shortly after her release, she retained Erick Cruz to represent her.  Erick got to work on the case and obtained information that demonstrated that the person who purported to be an Uber driver was not actually a driver.  Erick was ready to present this information to jurors to demonstrate that the reason the client was out of control was because she refused the driver's advances and his sinister desires.  Erick pushed the case to the brink of trial, but the prosecutors realized the deficiencies in their case and dismissed the charges.  Now that the charges have been dismissed, the client will be eligible to expunge her case and prevent public access to the arrest record.
