Keller Criminal Defense Attorneys Wins Another Serious Traffic Case in Minneapolis, Hennepin County District Court

Earlier this month, Keller Criminal Defense Attorneys won the dismissal of yet another serious traffic case on behalf of one of our clients who was wrongfully accused.  Max A. Keller’s criminal defense client was charged with Careless/Reckless Driving for allegedly throwing a pop can at another vehicle that had cut him off, in a road rage dispute.  After careful research and persuasion, Hennepin County Criminal defense attorney Max A. Keller showed the prosecutor from the Minneapolis City Attorney’s Office that the driver of the car that cut off his client was equally to blame.  As a result, the charge against Keller’s client was reduced from the serious charge of Reckless driving down to an ordinance fine of littering with a $50 fine.

Max Keller has won countless jury trial cases involving misdemeanors and felonies, sex crimes, and DWI’s. He is a member of the Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice, which only allows the top 50 criminal defense attorneys in the state as members. Max is a frequent speaker at CLE’s and is often asked for advice by other defense attorneys across Minnesota.

What to Do If You Have Been Charged with a Criminal Offense

Confidential informants may provide integral information to help build criminal investigations, but how reliable is that information when they are receiving payment for their services? To protect them, state law requires the identity of informants be kept confidential. For those facing criminal charges, however, this creates challenges in questioning the accuracy and validity of the information given at trial.
Stay calm and compose after getting accused of a crime but not charged in Minneapolis, MN. Do not discuss the facts of your case with anyone, including your relatives and family members. Hire a criminal defense attorney with a demonstrated record of winning cases like yours. Your attorney will discuss your rights, guide you on how to cooperate with law enforcement within the legal boundaries, and build a solid defense strategy to fight the charges you could face in the future.
Expungement and sealing of records in Minnesota affect how your criminal history appears to government agencies and the public. The main difference between the two legal actions is that expungement permanently removes past arrests, criminal charges, or convictions from private and public databases, while sealing hides the criminal record from the public. Courts, government entities, and law enforcement agencies can access sealed criminal records.
