Dismissal on the first day of trial

Tarek Shawky

Case Conclusion Date:February 13, 2013

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Dismissal by the prosecution

Description:Good cases always get better, and bad cases always get worse. My client had a strong domestic violence case, strong because I knew it was a winner based on the obvious lies and inconsistencies that the alleged victim made up to get my client arrested. On the first day of trial after speaking to the DA supervisor, the DA dismissed the case entirely. That is justice, late, but justice none the less. (LA County Case # 2WW03483)
