Mr. Lloyd has a number of “war stories” about cases he has fought over the years. Here is a brief list of case victories.
One such case was a DUI where Mr. Lloyd agreed that his client was drunk and behind the wheel of the car. This confused the assistant state’s attorneys prosecuting his client. Ultimately the jury acquitted the Defendant of all charges. Mr. Lloyd argued, and presumably, the jury believed the testimony of the defense witnesses that the car was old and would not start while he was behind the wheel. That a car be operable (able to move on its own) is an essential element of a charge of DUI.
Controlled Substance Case
A sale of controlled substances charge where the state incorrectly charged the type of drug sold.
Sex Offender Case
A failure to register as a sex offender where the Judge believed the defense argument (which was true) that the Defendant could not read and so his failure to report that he was fired from a job was not a knowing failure.
Domestic Battery Case
Many domestic battery cases on various grounds including; reasonable parental discipline, it was not the Defendant (some other dude did it), it didn’t happen / the complaining witness lied, and self-defense.
