“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!!”

Teacher resigns after felony charges filed

On Behalf of | Oct 15, 2015 | Felonies |

A Georgia middle school teacher recently left his position following his arrest for allegedly engaging inappropriate behavior with a minor student. The felony charges include sexual battery and assault. He was only granted bond for one of the charges. While he currently remains behind bars, some believe that the charges he faces are inherently flawed.

The incident that apparently spawned the charges took place when a high school student returned to the middle school leadership program that she had once attended. At some point during her visit, the 16-year-old student claimed that she was inappropriately touched by the teacher. An investigation by the internal human resources division subsequently prompted his resignation from the program that he originally helped establish.

The student’s enrollment is what has some questioning the validity of at least one of the charges. According to state law, students who are allegedly sexually assaulted by teachers must actually be enrolled at the school where they teach in order to warrant certain charges. As such, his motion for bond argues that he should indeed be granted the possibility of being released from jail on bond.

There is no doubt that felony charges are a serious matter for any defendant, and a conviction can result in a criminal record that can erase a myriad of opportunities in the future. While Georgia defendants are indeed protected by the full breadth of the law during criminal investigation and trial court proceedings, it is still advisable to conduct a careful and in-depth review of any and all charges alongside their respective counsel. Doing so can help turn what appears to be a hopeless situation into a comprehensive and formidable plan of defense.
