Case Conclusion Date:December 17, 2010
Outcome:Reversed (as to counts appealed)
Description:In this case, client admitted to the offense at time of arrest. On appeal I argued that there was insufficient evidence of underlying misdemeanor crime and that, under the corpus delicti rule, the client's admission could not be used to prove his guilt in the absence of other evidence. The Court of Appeal agreed. I was also able to get the trial court to award additional two months pre-sentence credit on the remaining counts.
