Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: Hung jury and subsequent negotiated plea
Description: Jim Parkman, Alec Rose and I represented "The Ferrari Guy" who was charged with embezzling 2 Ferrari Enzos and a Mercedes McLaren. The trial took place in Los Angeles, California. Mr. Erikkson was arrested after being involved in a crash in the red Ferrari Enzo where it is alleged he was traveling 190 miles per hour on the Pacific Coast Highway when he ran into a telephone pole. He walked away with only a busted lip. He was also charged with DUI from this incident. There was an additional charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. After a two week trial and a hung jury, we worked out a plea agreement to resolve all charges.
