Charges were dropped after Orlando criminal defense attorney Zahra Umansky declared her intention to challenge evidence.
ORLANDO, FL, July 21, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Orlando criminal defense attorney Zahra Umansky of the Umansky Law Firm was successfully able to get the charges against her client dropped in a burglary of dwelling case. Burglary of dwelling charges, which are levied against an individual who allegedly breaks into another person's house, carry serious criminal consequences including a mandatory prison sentence.
"Even first time offenders will receive a mandatory prison sentence if convicted of burglary of dwelling charges," said Ms. Umansky. "Therefore, it is important to have an attorney who is prepared to present your defense and go to trial. In this instance, we were able to get a great result for a client facing mandatory prison time."
According to the facts reported in the Seminole County Court records, Ms. Umansky's client allegedly broke into someone else's house and stole some property. The state claimed they had a fingerprint of the client on a window outside the house. The fingerprint was the crucial piece of evidence against Ms. Umansky's client.
During her pretrial preparation, Ms. Umansky researched fingerprint analysis technology documents in order to more effectively cross examine the prosecution's expert witnesses. Her research showed that it is possible for human error in fingerprint analysis to yield inaccurate results. On the morning of the trial, the prosecutor dropped the charges upon discovering that Ms. Umansky planned to challenge the fingerprint evidence.
