He did then get the phone out of his pocket and took pictures of the pavement where he had been accused of urinating. The pictures showed the pavement was dry. Greg was then retained and showed these pictures to the Hermosa Beach City Prosecutor, who dismissed the case.

    Case Dismissed
    Description:
    Our client was issued a ticket for public nuisance, Penal Code section 372, in Hermosa Beach. Our client insisted to the police officer that he was not urinating at all, but instead was standing looking at his phone in a position that could be mistaken for urinating. In fact, when the police officer gave the client the ticket, the client had not even opened his fly or zipper and told the officer this. Moreover, the client had a witness, who was standing nearby smoking. Greg then appeared in court and presented the Hermosa Beach City Prosecutor with a signed declaration from the witness as to the events. The Hermosa Beach City Prosecutor dismissed the case.
  • People v Eddie Goodwin

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Sep 23, 2011
    Outcome:
    Case Dismissed
    Description:
    Our client was accused of twelve misdemeanor counts of criminal threats (Penal Code section 422) and twelve counts of violating a civil restraining order (Penal Code section 166) in the Torrance Superior Court. The alleged victim was an attorney who was having an affair with our client's wife. Greg Hill subpoenaed the phone records of the alleged victim's law firm, which required motions to compel and overcoming motions to quash, to show that none of the alleged phone calls were from our client. This involved looking through tens of thousands of phone numbers in the records over several months. The case lasted for over one year before the Torrance City Prosecutor agreed to dismiss the case when Greg showed that the records impeached the witness' claims of our client calling the law firm repeatedly to threaten the attorney.
