In 2021, Chuck Lanehart successfully defended his client, accused of prostitution. All charges have been dropped by the prosecutor and she will be eligible to have her arrest expunged. Below is the client’s thank you note:
Thank you so much for your professional and expeditious handling of my case. Everyone on your staff was courteous and patient in explaining the American judicial system with which I am not familiar. I am very fortunate to have someone as experienced and knowledgeable as you helping me.
I am very appreciative of your help in getting my bail money returned and disposing my case quickly and completely. I recommend your law firm to anyone who needs legal representation.
Chuck Lanehart recently earned praise from his 57-year-old client who had been to Colorado to visit her relatives for Christmas. She purchased THC edibles and drove home to the Texas Hill Country. Going through a small county on the South Plains, she was stopped for a traffic violation. The officer said he smelled marijuana and searched her car, finding the edibles. There was no marijuana. After my discussions with the prosecutor, the case was eventually dismissed. My client will be entitled to an expunction soon.
I can’t tell you how grateful we are for your assistance. We feel that your knowledge and relationship with the County of Garza was significant to the outcome of my case. I thank god that I was able to find you and I’m so grateful that you represented me. I’ve had many sleepless and tormented nights thinking about the potential outcome without legal representation. I feel like the weight of this case has been lifted and I can go on with my life.
Chuck Lanehart’s client was accused of molesting a child, while running a Lubbock daycare center. A strong defense was mounted, attacking the credibility of the mother of the complainant. Lanehart, argued the abuse claims were due to money conflicts between the mother and the daycare center.
In 2002, the case was declared a mistrial from a hung jury. In 2003, the defense entered into a plea agreement with prosecution and avoided a conviction. Instead of a criminal record or registration as a sex offender, the defendant received a five-year probation period. Separate charges of indecency with a child and injury of a child from two other accusers were further dropped.
Lanehart successfully filed a motion of dismissal for a former corporal in the Lubbock County Jail. A judge agreed to dismiss felony charges of evidence tampering for the defendant. Chuck Lanehart, said his client was a “scapegoat” for the waste of taxpayers’ money paid to Johnson “for a wrong that was never committed.”
