Clients Case For Criminal And/Or Terroristic Threats Dismissed The Day of Trial
Criminal And/Or Terroristic Threats
Day of Trial Dismissal
The San Mateo County District Attorney's Office charged my client with nine (9) counts of Penal Code section 422, Criminal or Terroristic Threats. The alleged victim in this case was very upset at my client and tried everything possible to ruin him. This alleged victim caused my client to be fired from his job, a civil harassment restraining order to be placed against him, and a criminal case to be filed. This criminal case was really insidious because it alleged nine (9) crimes of moral turpitude on separate dates. If convicted of these crimes my client would have almost assuredly been deported from the United States. The San Mateo County District Attorney's Office insisted at arraignment, prior to the pre-trial conference, and over two separate pre-trial conferences that they were going to trial on this case. However, all along, I assured my client that despite the District Attorney's tough talk that I believed they would likely dismiss this case on the day of trial. On the day of trial the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office acted as we suspected and dismissed the case against my client. My client gets to stay in the United States and close the chapter of meritless charges that were filed against him by the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.
