Felony Sex Offense Charges Dismissed

An out-of-state college student met a girl on an on-line dating website. After several conversations via text as well as over the phone, the two decided to get together for a date. The date went well and the couple agreed to see each other a second time. Feeling that they had really hit it off, they kept corresponding and developed a strong interest in continuing what seemed like a wonderful relationship.

Kaehne Gets Another Outstanding Result

A 28 year old man was charged with 2nd Degree Sexual Assault with Use of Force, and Burglary. He had met the alleged victim on an online dating site, and was invited to her apartment for a massage. He later went to her apartment a second time to discuss their relationship. The alleged victim claimed he forced his way into her apartment, dragged her into her bedroom, and forcibly raped her. Our client's version was that they were intimate, and the alleged victim exploded when he came clean and admitted to being married.

Disorderly Conduct Charges Dismissed

A 41 year old government employee was charged with Disorderly Conduct in Sheboygan County after an argument with his wife. He discovered his wife had been shoplifting items, and selling them on the internet. During the argument, he tore a photograph and threw it on the floor. No physical injuries were reported by his wife.

Felony Sexual Assault Charge Dismissed

A 27 year old Sheboygan man was charged with 2nd Degree Sexual Assault in April of 2016. After learning the alleged victim was making false allegations of an assault, the client was proactive in retaining Kirk Obear and Associates prior to the District Attorney's office filing official charges. This quick action allowed our firm to take immediate action to protect his rights.

Felony Fleeing Motorcyclist gets Expunction of Record, Thanks to Brett

B.D. was charged with Felony Attempting to Flee or Elude an Officer, facing 3 ½ years in prison when he retained our firm. B.D. was riding his motorcycle with a friend when stopped for traffic violations. B.D. refused to provide the officer information, got on his motorcycle, and took off at a high rate of speed. The officer was unable to catch up to him, but the next day the arrest was made.

Another Strike Dealt Against Unfair Marijuana Laws

With both Attorney Obear and Attorney Kaehne being active legal committee members for NORML, J.D. reached out to our firm for representation on charges of Felony Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Felony Bail Jumping case in Iowa County, Wisconsin. Back in 2013, J.D. and his bandmate played a show in Milwaukee, and were driving back to their home State of Nebraska when pulled over for a traffic violation. The Deputy noted the odor of marijuana, and J.D. immediately handed over a baggie containing marijuana residue, and a marijuana pipe. He bailed out that same night, but was later issued a Felony Bail Jumping charge for missing a Court date. When our firm took the cases over, J.D. was facing a potential penalty of 10 years in prison.

Drug Case Dismissed

Melissa's client was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance after law enforcement searched his vehicle as it was leaving a state park. First, Melissa filed a motion to exclude evidence of the odor of marijuana being present during the traffic stop. The judge agreed that any testimony regarding the odor of marijuana coming from her client was highly prejudicial and irrelevant and must be excluded. After losing the motion, the prosecution tempted the client with an offer to resolve the case with a fine only. The client maintained his innocence and Melissa kept fighting. After Melissa filed additional motions, the prosecution was left with no choice but to dismiss the case outright.

Forgery Charges Dismissed

A 28 year old Sheboygan man was charged with three counts of Forgery, facing 18 years in prison. His brother and uncle were also charged after passing fraudulent checks at a local bank. The prosecution claimed our client was responsible as well, since he was kind enough to provide his relatives a ride to the bank, and also due to the fact his uncle implicated him when confronted by a detective. Attorney Brett T. Kaehne filed other acts motions with extensive exhibits solidifying the brother had a series of untruthful conduct, and fraudulent financial transactions. After 6 months of battle, and just prior to jury trial, the prosecution had no choice but to concede they "could not prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt." Our client tearfully walked out of court with all charges dismissed.

Melissa and Kirk Secure OWI Win - Not Guilty on 2nd Offense

Our client came to us knowing that there was a tough, uphill battle ahead. Not only did the police treat her poorly by failing to properly investigate the incident, but she also had to deal with a dishonest witness who was trying to throw her under the bus. As is often the case, the prosecutor was more interested in putting the question to the jury rather than trying to resolve matters. Melissa Barrette and Kirk Obear tried the case together in a one day trial. The case went to the jury and in a very quick decision (less than 15 minutes) they returned a verdict of Not Guilty.
