When most people consider the idea of having to bail out a family member from jail, they think about a child, possibly a sibling or maybe even a spouse. However, NBA superstar Lebron James had to bail his mother out of a legal jam when she allegedly committed a battery crime involving a valet. Any such case requires a skilled Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney especially because Lebron James' mother did not cooperate with police and actually struck the valet with her hand.
Lebron James' mother allegedly slapped a Miami Beach valet so hard in the face she lost her balance and fell to the ground. She was then approached by a police officer and told him "I don't trust your kind." Gloria James, 43 years old, allegedly struck the valet after retrieving James' car and putting in on the valet ramp in front of the hotel while Gloria and a female driver stood around talking to people for 30 minutes. The woman approached the valet after he turned off the car and shouted obscenities at him. She then struck the valet and fell down herself. She was transported to a nearby police station and when police attempted to question her, she responded by saying she didn't "trust" their "kind" and was allegedly drunk throughout the incident.
Having to pick up a loved one in jail is a major challenge, especially if the crime involved a violent altercation. When a lawyer works to represent someone charged with any sort of violent crime, he must assess the entire situation. In this case, the woman was allegedly drunk and there were quite a few witnesses on hand to see the incident, making the crime more difficult to defend. For a Defense Attorney, certain experts would have to be hired to interview the various people who were potential witnesses.
