Stand Your Ground Defense For Retired Police Captain

Since retired Tampa police captain Curtis Reeves Jr. was charged with second-degree murder, Escobar & Associates has left no stone unturned in his defense. Mr. Reeves and counsel have contended that the 2014 movie theater shooting was defensible under Florida’s Stand Your Ground laws. A Florida Supreme Court ruling in 2017 left open that possibility, but in Dec. 2019, the court ruled the change did not apply retroactively. He remains out on bail with a trial date of October 2020.

Coleman Middle School Teachers Exonerated

After the principal at Coleman Middle School and his wife, also employed as a teacher in the Hillsborough County Public Schools, were charged with child abuse, they were ultimately exonerated thanks to the defense of Escobar & Associates. Accused of assault, they were arrested, and soon resigned their school positions. Their defense team discovered that threatening texts, vital pieces of evidence, had been fabricated and manipulated. They were reinstated to employment with the school district.

Sexual Battery Charges Dropped

A Tampa police officer in his 40s, Adam York, was accused of sexual battery in connection with a traffic stop on Feb. 1, 2016. He was arrested and fired. Ultimately, the state attorney contended that the officer had consensual, not forced, sex. Mr. York and his defense attorney, Rick Escobar, insisted that York never had sexual contact with the complaining witness. Furthermore, according to Escobar, the evidence was flawed. The police department would not rehire him, but criminal charges were dropped.
