Probation Terminated in Absconding Case

Recently, an individual was charged with absconding from his probation officer after cutting off his ankle monitor. As a result, the State of NC demanded the individual serve their entire suspended sentence (which was several months long) in jail. Desiring to avoid such an outcome, the individual reached out to Goolsby Law Firm.

Criminal defense attorney Thom Goolsby took on the case and began working on the client’s behalf. Due to Attorney Goolsby’s insightful actions and defense skills at trial, the judge in the case terminated probation with no active time assessed for the client’s alleged absconding. Instead of going to jail, the client walked out of court a free man.

DWI/DUI

Client Found Not Guilty of DWI and Careless & Reckless Driving

Goolsby Law Firm recently helped a client who was facing two charges, including:

  • DWI (driving while impaired)
  • Careless & reckless driving

The client was charged by an NC State Trooper after smashing into another car before turning into his own driveway. After going into his house and the neighbors calling 911, law enforcement arrived. While the client denied his impairment, the State Trooper took him to test his blood alcohol content (BAC), the result of which was .12%. 

The case went to trial, where attorney Thom Goolsby aggressively defended his client’s rights. At the conclusion of the case, the client was found not guilty.

Traffic

Multiple Driving-Related Charges Dismissed

When a local woman was charged with careless and reckless driving and a window tint violation, she reached out to Goolsby Law Firm for help. After swiftly getting involved in the case and negotiating on his client’s behalf, Attorney Thom Goolsby was able to have both charges dismissed. As a result, no license points were assessed to the client’s insurance.

DWI/DUI

Client Found Not Guilty of Multiple Criminal Charges

Recently, an NC woman found herself facing quite a bit of trouble when she was charged with the following criminal offenses:

  • Driving while impaired (DWI)
  • Felony assault on a law enforcement officer
  • Two counts of assault on law enforcement officers
  • Resisting arrest

Law enforcement who was involved with the woman’s arrest alleged that she was impaired and attacked multiple police officers by striking one with a vehicle and fighting/injuring two others. The consequences of being found guilty on all offenses were severe, so the woman reached out to Goolsby Law Firm for help.

Attorney Thom Goolsby assisted the client in taking her case to a Superior Court trial – where she denies all of the charges against her. Due to his aggressive defense and energetic actions in advocating for the client, she was found not guilty of the DWI, felony assault on a law enforcement officer, and the misdemeanor assaults on law enforcement officers.
