“Hired Matt Hirsch at a distance to take on a traffic case with a missed mandatory court appearance (or two). Even as the case dragged on longer than anticipated (not the fault in any way of the lawyer), and indeed went a couple rounds, Mr. Hirsch remained engaged, positive, and proactive. I firmly believe he and his firm resolved my case with the best outcome for me. Would recommend Cohen & Hirsch for cases of my type without reservation, and his working for me at a fairly great distance, without my ever appearing back in state, deserves particular note”

“Matt was a great treasure! Always kept calm and let me be the same. Looking at his fb feed, I was convinced he’s the right person for me. Helped get through a difficult situation. His fees were also comparable to the others given the amount of personal attention he paid to the case. Never had the trouble of dealing with the paralegals(as we all know what happens). He was always available on text. Great experience!!”

Teen’s felony charges dropped by prosecution

On Behalf of | Apr 3, 2015 | Felonies |

Most people in Georgia can likely recall when a suspected attempted robbery ended in the death of a young toddler. One of the two boys involved in the incident was only 15 at the time and was also the last to be charged. Although he initially faced felony charges, it appears that a careful articulated plea deal with the prosecution in addition to his full cooperation with the authorities has altered the outcome.

The shooting occurred in 2013 and involved both the defendant as well as a 17-year-old teen. After having met earlier that day, the older of the pair suggested that they find someone to rob. However, the older teen later produced a gun and shot at a mother who was pushing a stroller. While the mother survived, her 13-month-old toddler was fatally wounded.

According to those involved in the case, the young teen was little more than a witness to the shooting. He claims that he had no prior knowledge of the gun nor was he aware that any type of violence would be involved. Furthermore, authorities acknowledged the enormous helping hand that he had in helping sort out the details of what actually occurred.

Originally, it was argued that the defendant’s case should have been handled in the Georgia juvenile court system, but instead, the prosecution agreed that any consequences from a conviction would result in him being freed from jail. Additionally, the felony charges for murder were also dropped, and he instead pleaded guilty on the charges of attempting an armed robbery. This plea deal allowed the young teen to be placed on house arrest in lieu of more jail time, where he has spent the last two years. Although he will be monitored with GPS technology, he will be permitted to attend church, school and work responsibilities with permission.
