Bradley S. Sherman has a background as both a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney since 1998. Having experience in both areas has given Mr. Sherman invaluable insight into the criminal justice system and has helped him succeed for his clients. Mr. Sherman achieved board certification in 2003 in the area of criminal trials. Mr. Sherman has obtained NOT GUILTY VERDICTS for clients charged with Racketeering, White Collar Offenses; Sex Crimes; Carjacking; Aggravated Assault; Robbery and more. If you call our office for a initial consultation, we encourage you to ask for the Case Numbers where Mr. Sherman was able to obtain acquittals for his clients.
The following is a list of jury trials with verdicts, hung juries or outcomes resulting from evidence exonerating the Defendant, where Mr. Sherman was defending the accused. Please keep in mind that these are only a fraction of the cases handled by Mr. Sherman. Many more cases were resolved without a Jury Trial where the State decided to drop or reduce charges, and/or the defendant decided to accept the State’s plea offer
State of Florida v. Tyrone Davis; Case Number 2013-102944 CFDL. Mr. Sherman has been representing Tyrone Davis for over two years, defending Mr. Davis against two counts of First Degree Murder. In November of 2014, a 12 member jury was impaneled and after a weeklong trial they were deadlocked. The jurors could not agree as to whether there was enough evidence to convict Mr. Davis of any wrongdoing. A Not Guilty verdict or dismissal of all charges is the best you can do for a criminal client. Mr. Sherman takes great satisfaction (along with Mr. Davis) with stopping the State of Florida from being able to convince an entire jury of their theory of the case.
State of Florida v. Troy Edward Green, Jr.; 2013-306647 CFDB. Troy Green is very satisfied with the outcome of his case. During 2014 Mr. Green was charged with Felony Battery and was facing a mandatory prison sentence. After a year of working on the case, Mr. Sherman was able to show that the State’s witnesses were unreliable and the State ended up agreeing to a Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct charge. Mr. Green did not have to go to jail and he did not have to serve any probation.
State of Florida v. K L P; 2014-302909 CFDB. In 2011 and 2012, Client K L P stole thousands of dollars from her employer. KLP was facing a mandatory prison sentence in excess of two (2) years. Earlier this year (2015), Mr. Sherman was able to have KLP placed on probation with no jail time. This was a great success because KLP cares for minor children and a prison sentence would have been devastating.
State v RB; 2014-302585 CFDB; RB was chared with a 2nd degree Felony, Dealing in Stolen Property. Mr. Sherman was able to negotiate a diversionary program for RB so that he could avoid jail and probation.
State v MB; 2013-102784 CFDL; MB was charged with Aggravated Assault with a firearm, carrying a 3 year minimum mandatory jail sentence. Mr. Sherman was able to bypass the prosecutor and convince the judge to give the client probation with no jail time. The client was put on probation in August of 2014 and is still enjoying his freedom today.
State v SB; 2012-2846 CFAWS and State v AR; 2012-2845 CFAWS; These clients were charged together with Felony Grand Theft and Scheme to Defraud. Mr. Sherman was able to have their cases dismissed after completing a short diversion program.
State v MF; 2014-102— CFDL; client was charged with child abuse for disciplining her own child. Mr. Sherman convinced the prosecutor to drop the charges and now there is no public record of what happened.
State v JG; 2014 – 101805 CFDL; State v HW; 2013-107736 MMDL; These are just a few of many former clients charged with drug possession charges who ended up getting no jail and no probation. Call Bradley Sherman if you want to hear about more past Clients who ended up with a happy result.
