Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorneys and Pro Sports

Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Jun 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

When a Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney represents someone charged with public intoxication or assault, there is a great deal of research, investigation and legal work which must be done. However, when that individual is a famous sports or sports entertainment star, the case becomes even more complicated as it involves the media and public interest. This can be complicated, in part, because any public figure will have a tainted jury pool, a prosecution team that will be motivated to get a conviction and other such challenges. Recently, two sports personalities were involved in legal issues which required a skilled Criminal Defense Attorney. DeShawn Stevenson, one of the heroes of the recent NBA finals, was arrested for public intoxication after celebrating the historic victory of the Miami Heat and Lebron James. Police received a call about a drunk person wandering around an apartment complex in Irving, TX and when cops showed up, they found Stevenson who claimed to be lost. Law enforcement alleged that he was "a danger to himself and others" and arrested him after he flunked a field sobriety test. Another celebrity sports star, WWE wrestler Kevin Nash, was arrested for battery for allegedly beating up a drunk person for hitting on his wife. Nash was able to get out of the legal situation by hiring a knowledgeable Attorney to successfully defend him in Florida. Allegedly, while Nash and his wife were eating at a restaurant, a man approached the woman and began hitting on her. The man got aggressive and Nash then dropped him. He was arrested on suspicion of batter, but the charge was dropped due to lack of evidence.
