CRIMINAL CASES

The following is a list of some of the favorable results obtained by Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki in criminal cases he has handled. He cannot remember every case or charge he has handled  in his 25 plus years of criminal practice nor could any other attorney with that much experience. Composing this list took him hours and involved some online research of his own cases.  The names of the clients are not mentioned here for obvious reasons.

1992 - Lancaster County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was appointed to represent T. M. who was charged with burglary of the restaurant/ bar he worked at as a nighttime custodian.  After several days of trial, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty apparently rejecting the prosecution theory that only T.M. could have committed the crime.  The prosecutor introduced evidence of a deposit into the bank account of T.M. the day after the burglary for about the amount of money taken in the burglary.  Attorney Mielnicki, however, was able to demonstrate through use of an interstate subpoena to a famous Atlantic City casino that T.M. had actually won approximately that amount of money gambling.


1993 - Lancaster County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was appointed to represent J.R., who was charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver Marijuana and Possession. The prosecutor introduced evidence that J.R. was sitting on the drugs in a vehicle the police had stopped and, when they asked J.R. about the drugs, he stated such were his but only for personal use. Despite this evidence, the Jury found J.R. not guilty of both charges.

1993 - Lancaster County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was appointed to represent F.R. charged with the daylight armed robbery of a convenience store. The victim positively identified F.R. as the man who robbed him. The Jury indicated several times that it could not reach a verdict before the trial judge declared the Jury hung. The charges against F.R. were subsequently withdrawn.

1994 - Lancaster County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was appointed to represent J.C., an 18 year old charged with First Degree Murder.  During a trial that lasted more than one week, the prosecutor introduced two eyewitnesses who testified that J.C. fired the shot that took the life of the victim. Attorney Mielnicki cross-examined one of these witnesses for close to eight hours. The Jury returned a verdict of not guilty.

1996 - Allegheny County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was appointed to represent S.R., who was charged with Rape. The evidence presented by the prosecution, but disputed by defense counsel, was that S.R. had climbed through the window of the girls’ bedroom. At the end of a trial that lasted almost one week, the Jury returned a verdict of not guilty. 

1999 - Armstrong County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was retained to represent J.L., a bookkeeper/controller for a local car dealer, who was charged with several counts of theft. At the end of a trial that lasted nearly one week, the Jury returned a verdict of not guilty as to all charges, apparently rejecting the prosecutor's contention that J.L. as bookkeeper/controller was the only person who could have committed the crimes.

2007 - Allegheny County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was retained to represent R.K., a 21 year old charged with the rape of a fellow college student. At the end of a three day trial, the Jury returned a verdict of not guilty.

2007 - Allegheny County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was retained to represent J.C., charged with Aggravated Assault and Resisting Arrest, during an alleged altercation with three police officers. At the end of trial, the jury found J.C. not guilty of these charges. 

2010 - Allegheny County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki was retained to represent R.D. who was charged with Poss. With Intent to Deliver Marijuana. The police stopped R.D.’s vehicle for a traffic violation. Upon approaching the vehicle, the police smelled an ‘overwhelming” odor of marijuana. The police ordered R.D. out of the vehicle and retrieved a backpack from the front seat. The backpack was opened and 876 grams of marijuana was found. Attorney Mielnicki conceded that the search was lawful under the United States Constitution but contended that the opening of the backpack without a warrant violated Article I, Sec. 8 of the Pennsylvania Constitution. The Court agreed and ordered the marijuana suppressed.

2011 - Allegheny County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki was retained to represent D.J., charged with Firearms not to be Carried w/o a License and False Identification. D.J. was a passenger in a car lawfully stopped by the police. During the stop, D.J., according to the police, seemed nervous. The police asked D.J. for his name and, according to the police, he gave a false name. After determining his correct name, the police learned that there was a warrant for D.J. Upon arresting D.J., the police searched the passenger side of the car and found a gun under the floor mat. Relying on two very recent cases from the Pennsylvania Superior Court which called into question the right of the police to demand that a person not violating the law to identify himself, Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Mielnicki was successful in having the gun suppressed. The charges were then withdrawn.

2015 - Allegheny County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki was retained to represent J.S. who was charged with Simple Assault and Recklessly Endangering Another Person. Specifically, a financial planner called 911 and reported that J.S. pointed a gun at him over some dispute over the financial planner pulling in front of J.S. A State Trooper pulled over J.S. about 10 minutes after the call and located a gun in his car. The jury deliberated for about 20 minutes before returning a verdict of not guilty.

2016 - Allegheny County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki was retained to represent C.P. who was charged with a first offense DUI. C.P. simply could not afford a conviction or a license suspension. He was denied what is known as ARD, which would have resulted in a dismissal upon the completion of classes, due to an old and minor marijuana possession offense. Attorney Mielnicki, relying on a United States Supreme Court case – Missouri v. McNeely – sought to suppress the .18 blood alcohol content of C.P. as determined by testing on his blood, by arguing that such was taken involuntarily. That motion was denied. During the non-jury trial, Attorney Mielnicki demonstrated that the arresting officer was “cutting and pasting” reports on his DUI suspects. The trial court asked for some time to think the case through. During that time, the United States Supreme Court decided Birchfield v. North Dakota which provided support for Attorney Mielnicki’s argument that C.P.’s blood was taken involuntarily. Attorney Mielnicki quickly asked for reconsideration which the trial court granted. The trial court subsequently found C.P. not guilty of the two counts of DUI – one based on his blood alcohol content and one based on general impairment.

2016 - Cambria County
Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki was retained to represent C.N. who was charged with four (4) counts of Aggravated Assault, one (1) count of Assault by Prisoner, Resisting Arrest and DUI for his actions following his arrest for DUI. C.N. was on courtesy probation supervision at the time for a prior drug offense in Georgia and this was detained. At the preliminary hearing, Attorney Mielnicki had the Assault by Prisoner charge dismissed. He knew, however, that his client, due to being detained, would sit a long time waiting for trial. Attorney Mielnicki decided to file a motion to suppress certain evidence pertaining to the DUI based on an argument that, ironically, was accepted by the United States Supreme Court about a week after Attorney Mielnicki argued such to the Cambria County judge. He also file a petition for writ of habeas corpus challenging three (3) of the Aggravated Assault charges. At the actual hearing n said motions, one of the police officers admitted that he was not assaulted and that charge was withdrawn. While the judge was deciding the rest of Attorney Mielnicki’s motions, he reached a plea agreement calling for all the Aggravated Assault charges to be withdrawn. He then contacted authorities in Georgia and was able to convince them to release C.N. from the detainer. C.N. was then sentenced to time-served and released.

2016 - United States District Court
Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki was retained to represent J.T. who was charged with Malicious Destruction of Property (Arson) for the February 13, 2015 fire that destroyed his ex-girlfriends rental home. The United States called more than ten witnesses and introduced 118 exhibits. After a four day jury trial, after two hours of deliberations, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty.

The following are a few of the other criminal cases Pittsburgh Criminal Attorney Robert E Mielnicki has handled where he has obtained results that were favorable to his clients. Most criminal cases are resolved by plea agreement.
