Read More Violation: Domestic Assault and Violating Bail Conditions

Result: All charges dismissed and expunged without court cost

Additional Case Results: A 3-tour veteran of the Army special forces was accused by his wife of  severe domestic assault, including choking with a forearm and being thrown about the home.  After the arrest, the Defendant was accused of violating his bail conditions by going back to the his home even though his now estranged wife had vacated the home.  The alleged victim appeared in court to testify against her husband with numerous pictures of her bruised and bleeding body.

A very thorough investigation by investigators with Lannom and Williams revealed that a Mt. Juliet police officer had answered her distress call alleging assault before the victim sought a warrant.  It was found the alleged victim showed all of her injuries to the officers after the attacks that allegedly stretched over three days. Much to prosecutor's surprise, the injuries shown in the pictures were not present when officers answered the call and were shown the injuries our client was accused of inflicting.  The alleged victim's ex-husband was called to testify on our client's behalf.  The ex-husband, an active duty Lebanon police officer, advised  prosecutors under subpoena that the same women had made unfounded accusations against him during a break-up, which were also disproven.

Much to the alleged victim's surprise, prosecutors were convinced her story would not withstand cross-examination and all charges against our client were dismissed and expunged without court cost.

Violation: Possession Schedule II Drug & Paraphernalia/Davidson County
Possession of Over 1,000 Marijuana Plants in Home - Class A Felony (Wilson County)
 
Result: All charges in Davidson County were dropped and Client allowed to plead to a Class C Felony with suspended sentence and 1 year of supervised probation. After probation is served, client will have all charges dismissed and expunged from their record.
 
Additional Case Results: Davidson County and Mt. Juliet drug investigators executed 3 search warrants on the Defendant's residences in Davidson and Wilson County, resulting in charges of possession of a schedule II drug (cocaine) and possession of drug paraphernalia in Davidson County. The 2nd and 3rd search warrants resulted in charges of possession of more than 1,000 marijuna plants in one of the homes in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.

Frank Lannom and Melanie Bean challenged the validity of the Davidson County warrant in the Davidson County Criminal Courts.  The result of their full year of work in the Court was a finding the Search Warrant was fatally flawed and all evidence recovered was disallowed as evidence and a dismissal of all drug charges was entered. After this successful result, Frank turned his attention to the search warrants in Wilson County which resulted in the large find of marijuna plants and the charge of a Class A felony based on the number of plants, which carried a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 25 years and the seizure of the home.  

Leveraging the win in the Davidson County Criminal Courts, all charges were reduced to a Class C Felony with a completely suspended sentence with only one year of supervised probation. After completion of all probation, an agreement pursuant to judicial diversion was reached, which will result in all charges being dismissed and expunged.  No jail time was spent by the client in either county.  The hard work by my team in Wilson County resulted in the particularly satisfying result for me and my client. Further satisfaction was received by rulings protecting the sanctity of a citizen's home from arbitrary invasion by the Police.

Violation: Aggravated Statutory Rape (Appeal of Conviction)
 
Result: Conviction Set Aside and New Trial Set
 
Additional Case Results: Client was accused of the crime of Aggravated Statutory Rape and was represented by an attorney who handled criminal cases on a part-time basis and seldom handled cases involving sexual allegations or the Tennessee Sexual Offender’s registry.  After limted investigation and litigation, client pled guilty to Aggravated Statutory Rape and was placed on Judicial Diversion.  Client was advised by the court and his attorney that he would only be on the sexual offender registry for a limited time. Due to allegations of misconduct on the defendant's behalf, the court ordered the defendant to be on the sexual offender registry for a minimum of 14 years, contrary to the agreement made at the time of sentencing. Client was not sentenced to incarceration.
 
The client hired my firm to revoke the plea agreement entered 2 years prior.  Although Tennessee State Law basically states that citizens were not entitled to effective assistance of counsel nor proper advisement of what penaties they would face on the sexual offender registry, we filed a motion to revoke the guilty plea on the basis the client was misadvised as to his placement on the sexual offender registry by his attorney, the State's attorney, and the court.   The client had suffered multiple abuses by those overseeing the sexual offender registry for 4  years, including forcing him to quit jobs, prohibiting him from working at lawful jobs, making him leave work to meet with them without notice, placing GPS monitors on him without cause, and coming into his home unannounced.
 
After extensive briefs on the law and the nature of his representation, the criminal court was required to set aside his guilty charge and set the matter for trial.  This is quite possibly one of the first convictions set aside in Tennessee for failure of counsel to properly advise the consequences of the Sexual Offender's Registry.

Violation: DUI, Possession of Handgun and Violation of State Muffler Law

Result: Charges Dismissed

Additional Case Results: Citizen was driving a four wheel drive vehicle in the City of Mt. Juliet.  The police officer, who was approximately ½ mile away, testified that he heard a “loud and fast sounding” vehicle leaving a local restaurant.  Officer speeds through the parking lot of Providence Shopping Center in Mt. Juliet, and quickly pulls up behind the citizen who was driving a Dodge truck on the road. A stop of the vehicle was made and the officer charged the driver with DUI, possession of a handgun and violation of the State muffler law.  On behalf of the driver, we filed a motion to suppress the warrantless stop of the vehicle and to exclude any evidence obtained as a result of the stop.  On cross examination, the officer admitted that he never saw the vehicle he stopped driving erratically and that the vehicle had an intact muffler system. It became clear after cross examination of the officer that he never saw the client drive improperly, spin his tires and clearly never violated the state muffler law (this law requires vehicles to have a working muffler system and the truck in question had an expensive muffler system installed).  After cross examination , the Court found that the stop of the client’s vehicle lacked probable cause and that the stop of the client’s vehicle was illegal and all charges were dismissed without court cost.
Read More Violation: DUI 3rd Offense and Possession of Marijuana

Result: Charges reduced to DUI 1st Offense

Additional Case Results: Client was charged with 3rd Offense DUI and was facing up to 11 months and 29 days in jail, loss of license for up to 6 years, seizure of vehicle and stiff fines. Frank was able to negotiate a plea to DUI 1st Offense with all other charges dropped after proving all other pre-trial requirements had been completed. Client will only have to serve 30 days in jail, keeps their vehicle, have a suspended license for 1 year (but Frank negotiated a Restricted License for that time period to enable client to go to a from work and other necessary places), and fines attributable to a DUI 1st Offense which are significantly lower than for a 3rd Offense conviction.
Read More Violation: DUI 2nd Offense

Result: Charges reduced to Reckless Endangerment, no court date and no jail time

Additional Case Results: Client is in the healthcare industry and losing their license would make their career almost impossible. This was clients 2nd DUI. Frank was able to negotiate a plea to Reckless Endangerment after proving all other pre-trial requirements had been completed. After filing the proof with the court, the court ordered that our client spend 48 hours in the DUI Center and, if proof of completion is on file by a certain date with the court, there will be no need for our client to appear in court.  Our client avoided the jail time, significant fees, and stigma of a DUI 2nd charge.
Read More Case Type:  Personal Injury  - Trucking Accident
 
Case Details: Our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident with a tractor trailer truck and the truck was at fault.  He suffered extensive physical injuries requiring several surgeries, including severe brain damage which is permanent. He will require years of therapy and never be able to take care of himself.  We brought action against the at fault parties and settled before trial, giving our client and his family the financial help they need in order to provide him with the necessary lifetime of care resulting from this terrible accident.
 
Result: Confidential Settlement
Read More Violation:  Attempted 2nd Degree Murder with a Firearm
 
Result: Attempted Murder Charge Dismissed and Client Allowed to Plea to a Reckless Act and Serve a Fully Probated Sentence
 
Additional Case Results: A 54 year old man was accused of attempted second degree murder after discharging his firearm during a verbal incident with a  female, resulting in injuries to the female by the bullet entering through her back.   After proving the discharge of the weapon was an unintentional act, Frank Lannom and Melanie Bean convinced the District Attorney to dismiss the Attempted Murder Charge and an agreement was reached to dispose of the case on a reckless act.  They also successfully argued to the Court the Defendant should receive a fully probated sentence.
