Case Results

State of Minnesota v. DEH (Hennepin County, 2015)

Client was charged with 2nd Degree Assault with a Dangerous Weapon after Client allegedly poured gasoline on another person. The defense centered around the fact gas was poured on a piece of property near where the alleged victim was standing, and the alleged victim only accidentally had gas poured on him. There was no intentional act committed against the alleged victim. On the eve of trial, the State DISMISSED the charged alleged. Client was ecstatic as he could move forward in a positive way with his life.

State of Minnesota v. MY (Ramsey County, 2015)

Client was charged with 2nd Degree Assault with a Deadly Weapon after Client shot a gun at a person causing people to evacuate his house in the early morning hours. The alleged victim said as much in a recorded interview to law enforcement shortly thereafter. However, private investigation and rigorously scrutiny of every piece of evidence presented by the State, we filled in the gaps left by law enforcement's investigation. Client was intoxicated and we placed the parties in the house--emphasizing the distance away versus the angle and direction of shot--through corroborating testimony, uncovering crucial facts not touched by law enforcement, and used Client's lack of overt violent or assaultive behavior to develop the defense that Client did specifically intent to cause fear of immediate bodily harm or death in another person. Client's case was tried to a jury and Client was found NOT GUILTY of 2nd Degree Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

State of Minnesota v. M.P.H. (Ramsey County, 2015):

Law enforcement executed a search warrant on client's house suspecting a marijuana grow operation. In addition to the marijuana grow operation, law enforcement uncovered a host of loaded firearms and 102 grams of methamphetamine. Client was charged with a 1st degree drug possession charge and was facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 3 years in prison for possessing loaded firearms in the presence of drugs and a presumptive prison commitment of 86 months. Through vigorous advocacy for my client and the employment of aggressive treatment programming, we convinced the State to DISMISS the mandatory minimum sentence regarding the firearms and DEPART from the sentencing guidelines to a probationary sentence. Persistence was absolutely crucial!

State of Minnesota v. S.G & J.G. (Blue Earth County, 2014):

Clients were stopped for an equipment violation traveling from Colorado to Minnesota. After they were stopped, the police found marijuana (of all kinds) and a host of drug paraphernalia. Clients were charged with multiple felony drug crimes. Through intense negotiations, State agreed to DISMISS after proof that Clients possessed valid medical marijuana cards from Colorado.

State of Minnesota v. C.C. (Carver County, 2014):

Client was charged with felon in possession of a firearm after the police executed a search warrant on Client's house and found firearms. Client was convicted of a felony a few years prior to this alleged offense and could not possess any firearms. The search warrant claimed that Client was implicated in an ATM theft at a nearby bar. However, we challenged the legality of the search warrant because the facts attested to by law enforcement in the application for the search warrant and the facts actually presented by the evidence differed drastically. After intense negotiations with the State, the State agreed to DISMISS all felon in possession of a firearm charges.

State of Minnesota v. C.P. (Becker County, 2014):

Client was charged with First-Degree Arson. Client was adamant at the outset that Client did not intentionally set Client's house on fire. However, there were a myriad of problems in proving Client's innocent such as, lack of exonerating expert testimony and that Client had multiple prior fires at Client's residence. Through tireless investigation and dedication to Client's cause, an expert was secured who testified Client's residence was not intentionally set based on all of the facts of Client's case and we were successfully in excluding the ?majority of Client's prior fires from evidence at trial. After a week-long trial, Defendant was found NOT GUILTY of all charges.

State of Minnesota v. C.F. (Chisago County, 2014):

Client was charged with multiple felony charges after crashing Client's vehicle into a guardrail, which caused significant injuries to the passenger of the vehicle, including First-Degree Burglary because Client unlawfully entered another person's house after he alleged fled from the accident scene. A Judge DISMISSED the First-Degree Burglary charge as Client did not demonstrate any criminal intent to commit a crime inside of the house other than a trespass, which cannot support a burglary charge.


I had been accused with a crime I didn't commit, 2nd degree assault with a deadly weapon, so I searched the web and look at videos to see if I could find anything related to my case. There are hundreds of lawyers you could pick from, but I assure you Anthony Bussa, is the the right lawyer for you when it comes to any bad situation. These are the results I got from Anthony: First, Anthony will strategize what you have been charge with. Then second, he will get his best investigator team to find the source and third, they will bring everything in for a phenomenal result to execute a win.

He will fight for you until his last breath, have a drink of water and fight again. My nationality is Hmong, but Anthony doesn't make me feel like I'm different from him, which makes me feel like he's an older brother and a best friend to me. My case was very tough because I was the shooter, but he didn't have any doubts and continued to fight for my innocent. I felt like I was in a war and the enemies are closing in and there is no escape, but Anthony still stood by my side. We tried my case and Anthony got me a not guilty verdict! I will forever be indebted to him for all of the hard work he put in on my case.
