  • People of the State of Illinois

    Practice Area:
    Criminal defense
    Date:
    Jan 29, 2008
    Outcome:
    Not Guilty
    Description:
    Mr. E.C. was charged with two counts of Felony Unlawful Restraint. In order to win this case, I knew I would have to expose the alleged victim to be a liar. My theory was that she made these accusations against my client, becuase they were involved in a relationship that was about to get exposed to the live in father of her child. I pulled a number of phone records detailing hundered of calls that were exchanged between my client and this alleged victim. An aggressive cross examination of her showed that there was a motive to lie about the events. The Judge agreed with my theory and E.C. was found Not Guilty.
