Appeal – Petition for Habeas Corpus Granted.

Posted 2023 | State v. JA (Miami-Dade County)

The client was charged with numerous offenses, including solicitation to commit murder. The State filed a motion for pre-trial detention seeking to keep the client in custody during the pendency of his case. The trial court granted the State’s motion and the client was denied bond.

The client hired Mr. Forman to file an appeal called a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus. This petition challanged the trial court’s denial of pre-trial bond. Mr. Forman found a technical error with the trial court’s ruling and challanged whether the charge of solicitation was deemed a dangerous crime under the statute. The Third District Court of Appeal agreed with Mr. Forman and granted the petition.
