Verifiable Case Result

“My space” charges dismissed

State v. R.F.; Case No. 2008-CF-618(St Lucie County)

Arresting Agency: St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office

Case Summary: Our client, a teenager, was charged with using “My Space” to threaten to harm another teenager. The exact words used were “I’ll bust your lip, let me catch you slippin”. We politely made it clear to the prosecutor that a jury would never convict my client on such a whimsical and idle “threat”. Basically, we let them know there would be no deals and not to waste their time with any plea offers.

Result: State elected not to file formal charges.
