  • People v. Mans

    Practice Area:
    Criminal defense
    Outcome:
    Dismissed by the People on day of jury trial
    Description:
    This was a domestic violence case that evolved when a couple got into an argument on Christmas night. The alleged victim, who was confused and upset after an argument with my client, wound up walking in the middle of the street, unaware of the danger of buzzed drivers and heavy traffic. The boyfriend (my client) pulled her to safety, but a passing motorist thought the woman was being kidnapped. Several other motorists got involved and called 911. My client was arrested on Christmas night and taken into custody even though the "victim" told the cops he never struck her or touched her in any offensive manner. It turned out two of the callers were on probation, one for petty theft, the other a felon. This was uncovered after extensive investigation into the state's witnesses backgrounds and analysis of the 911 tape. The matter was dismissed on the merits per 1385 on the day we were to start trial. Needless to say, the client is over the moon and extremely grateful for all of my hard work.

  • People v. Alcante

    Practice Area:
    Criminal defense
    Outcome:
    People unable to proceed
    Description:
    My client was charged with approximately 15 counts of forgery and counterfeiting. This case arose from passing counterfeit 100 dollar bills and was from 2003. He was granted immunity by the FBI to turn state's evidence against another co-defendant, however, in 2006, the People filed against him. I filed a Serna motion based on prejudice to my client due to the staleness of the case and lack of due process. Furthermore, the notice to appear was sent to him ONE YEAR AFTER the appearance date, and mailed to his mother's address, even though the arresting agency had his current home address through the DMV. Needless to say, after strenuos argument with the court, I had the warrant recalled and quashed. My client was facing a year in the County Jail and restitution of $5,000.00, however, the Serna motion was granted and the People announced they were "unable to proceed" with prosecuting Mr. Alcanter. DISCLAIMER: The name has been slightly altered to protect the innocent, all names posted are with the permission of the client.
  • People v. Webster

    Practice Area:
    Criminal defense
    Outcome:
    Dismissal in furtherance of justice
    Description:
    My client was charged with grand theft auto, a trumped up charge filed by the "victim's" family. I got the People to see that this was contrived because the police were not called until three days after the alleged incident and that it was in retaliation for my client hitting another car while driving his friend's parent's car. DISCLAIMER: The name has been altered to protect the innocent. All names used have been with the permission of the client.
  • People v. Garcia

    Practice Area:
    Criminal defense
    Outcome:
    Charges dropped for insufficiency of the evidence!
    Description:
    This was a second degree burglary case. My client was accused of breaking into a neighbor's car. It was a mistaken identity case because that day he had been hanging out with another person dressed exactly like him. There was reasonable doubt because this other person's cell phone was found in the car that was broken into. My client is applying to become a police officer and a conviction against him would have prevented him from obtaining his goal because it was a serious misdemeanor. Once I pointed out to the People the weaknesses of their case, they dismissed for insufficiency of the evidence. However, this wasn't until we were almost ready to pick a jury and I announced ready. DISCLAIMER: The name has been changed or altered to protect the innocent. All names used have been with the full permission of the client.
  • People v. Costido

    Practice Area:
    Criminal defense
    Outcome:
    Not guilty after 7 day jury trial
    Description:
    My client was a well liked bouncer in a club who was simply doing his job. When he asked several patrons to leave, a malee broke out between three of the patrons and my client was blamed. At the end of the day, the jury was able to see that this "patron" was just trying to shake down the bar/restaurant for money and that my client was factually and legally innocent of the battery charges. DISCLAIMER: The name has been altered to protect the innocent. All names used have been with the authorization of the client.

    Acquitted after 6 day jury trial
    Description:
    My client was charged with domestic violence. It was a very emotional time for her as she was moving out of her husband's house. He became upset and called the police during an argument. Basically, he called 911 first. After vigorous investigation I was able to get to the bottom of it. The DA pressured us to settle before trial but we stood firm, the result was success!

    Criminal defense
    Outcome:
    People unable to Proceed on 9 of 10
    Description:
    After vigorous investigation I found out that the accuser in this case was on probation for battering my client! He falsified his story to the police because he was upset over the recent break-up of the relationship. I showed the People their "victim's" rapsheet and they folded on the heels of picking a jury.

  • People v. Boni

    Practice Area:
    Criminal defense
    Outcome:
    Acquittal after 7 stress-laden days of jury trial
    Description:
    My client was charged with battery on a pregnant woman and 2 counts of cruelty to a child arising from a neighbor dispute. Turns out she wasn't pregnant at all (this came out on the stand when she gave 3 versions of the events) and her "child" was never touched by my client, but in fact, summoned a gang to come after my client and throw rocks. My client, who speaks no English didn't call the police so he was arrested once they arrived. There were many witnesses and this was a stressful trial but in the end, the jury was able to deliver justice! DISCLAIMER: The name has been slightly altered to protect the innocent.
