  • Client Under Investigation for Drug Trafficking Avoids Prosecution

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly Keegan’s client was under investigation for mailing large quantities of controlled substances from the State of California to a house in Champlin, Minnesota. Her client was arrested, and a police investigation continued for over a year. After several conversations between Kelly and law enforcement investigators, the police and prosecutors elected not to bring charges against her client. Kelly oversaw the case to completion by then having records of the arrest removed from the client’s criminal record. Records of an arrest where no charges were ever filed can still appear on a background check and often do, limiting the opportunities of people in situations where the evidence never even supported a criminal charge. It is critical to be thorough and to understand how a stressful situation of an arrest can affect a client in many different ways.

  • Jury Acquits Kelly Keegan’s Client of Criminal Sexual Conduct

    Charge(s): 

    After a week-long felony jury trial in Anoka County, Kelly Keegan’s client was acquitted of three counts involving criminal sexual conduct. The allegation was that a grandfather inappropriately touched his granddaughter. Kelly was able to present a step-by-step break down of the facts involved in the case through cross examination of the State’s witnesses and by presenting evidence on her client’s behalf. The client also testified in his own defense. It was through investigation by a private investigator hired by Ms. Keegan, a close examination of the facts, and preparation of her client that Kelly was able to convince the jury that her client was not guilty.

  • Kelly Keegan forces dismissal of domestic assault charges in Isanti County

    Charge(s): 

    By aggressively pushing the case to trial in Isanti County, the prosecutor was forced to dismiss all charges against Ms. Keegan’s client. The case fell apart once witnesses were ordered to appear for trial and failed to show up on the day of trial.  Those accused of crimes have a constitutional right to confront their accusers in a court of law, and the ability to exercise those rights can make all the difference.

  • Kelly Keegan Gets Charges Stemming From A Bar Brawl Dismissed

    Charge(s): 

    A client was recently charged with Disorderly Conduct in the City of Anoka, Anoka County, for a night out in downtown Anoka in which he ended up being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A shoving match between bar patrons and his friend spilled out onto the street, where officers mistakenly believed the client was responsible for starting the fight. Kelly Keegan had statements taken from several persons who were present that night and was able to show that this was a case of mistaken identity. She also put together information concerning the client’s background to show that this was not a person who would start fights at bars. At stake was the client’s livelihood as a teacher and his business as a peaceful conflict resolution counselor. A conviction for this offense would have been devastating to the client’s reputation.
