The client was charged with entering into business establishments with fraudulent gift cards. After reviewing the evidence Joel discovered evidentiary issues that put the State’s evidence in question. Joel was ready to have an evidentiary hearing that would challenge the State’s evidence. At the time of the hearing, the State was unable to proceed and Joel had the case dismissed.
Client was charged by way of a 30 count criminal complaint, charging him and four other co-defendants with Unlawful Acts Regarding Computers and Theft. The client was accused of an elaborate scheme with co-defendants to manipulate casino games to provide them with a pay out of credits to their awards accounts and future gaming. The Nevada Gaming Control Commission’s investigation began and client hired Joel Mann at the onset of the investigation. Joel was able to avoid the client from dealing with the investigators but unfortunately an arrest warrant was issued. Joel quickly was able to get the arrest warrant quashed and client was able to do an own recognizance release walkthrough. Joel received pages and pages of discovery along with 500 gigs of data and surveillance. Once Joel had reviewed the evidence he worked quickly to resolve the matter. Joel was able to provide the District Attorney with the information necessary to explain that client’s real liability was a misdemeanor and not multiple felonies. Joel was able to get the case reduced without the client even having to come into Court again. Client was extremely happy as he was able to keep his job by avoiding a felony or gross-misdemeanor.
