Jeff Weiner Prominently Featured in Combat Handguns Magazine Article
Jeff Weiner is prominently featured in an article entitled, “Too Plead or Not To Plead“, in Combat Handguns magazine. The author, Massad Ayoob, worked with Jeff on a fascinating case. You can read the author’s summary of the case from the article below:
“I worked Case Five with famed Miami criminal defense attorney Jeff Weiner. The defendant was an armed robbery victim who, when the perpetrator fled, grabbed his shotgun out of the back office and gave chase. The fleeing felon turned as he ran and aimed his stolen .38 at the defendant, who fired a single shot. When your 12 gauge is loaded with Magnum #1 buckshot shells, a single shot may be all you need. It was in this case: All of the .30-caliber pellets struck home and the gunman was killed outright. A famously anti-gun state’s attorney decided to make a case of manslaughter out of it. Since the posture of the deceased aiming at the defendant behind him was such that all pellets entered behind lateral midline. The case was posited as “angry man chases down robber, shoots him in the back over mere money.”
We had the facts and were as certain of acquittal as could be-until the defendant’s doctor told Weiner that his client’s heart condition was so serious that the doc didn’t think he’d survive the stress of trial. Jeff worked a plea deal that included a withhold of adjudication, meaning that after a period of time staying out of trouble, it would be treated at law as if the case had never happened at all. The client remained alive and well, never served any time, and today has his guns and his carry permit back. That I submit was a happy ending.”
