I am not the type of criminal defense attorney who brags about a win, but I was especially annoyed that the State made my client go to trial on a theft case that should have been dismissed without going to trial. It took all of ten minutes before the jury found my client not guilty of the crime. Some chief prosecutors understand the difference between a case that needs to go to trial and one that needs to get dismissed. Other prosecutors are just scared to dismiss cases where a complaining witness is upset that the facts do not go in their favor. These cases should not go to trial, but the prosecutor gets bullied. A prosecutor should never allow a complaining witness force them to trial when it is clear that the person is not guilty of the charges. Frankly, I am not sure if this is the prosecutors personality or does the current Harris County District Attorney's Office "handcuff" their assistants so much that they are afraid to make the right call despite the fact that it may be a difficult one to explain to their witnesses.
