Client Stays Out of Custody in High Profile Case


Lead Trial Attorney, Andrew Leventhal, is depicted here advocating to keep his client out of custody during a bail hearing in a high profile case.  The prosecutor argued to have Mr. Leventhal’s client remanded into custody with a bail amount substantially higher than what the police initially requested in their application for a “Ramey” warrant.

Mr. Leventhal successfully persuaded the court that his client is not a flight risk nor a danger to the community. In addition, Mr. Leventhal noted that nothing had changed since the “Ramey” warrant and the first court appearance. As a result, Mr. Leventhal’s client remains out of custody during her case; this adds a lot more leverage for the defense during plea negotiations.
