Trial Dismissed For Client Facing Charges of Resisting Arrest & False Representation To A Police

CHARGE

Resisting Arrest & Falsely Representing Self As Another Person To a Police Officer

RESULT

Trial Dismissal

My client was charged in San Mateo County with resisting arrest and falsely representing himself as another person to a San Bruno Police Officer. My client was at a house party in San Bruno when a fight broke out in the street. Given the alleged nature of violent crimes associated with this particular residence in the past a majority of the San Bruno Police Department responded to the home. The San Bruno Police Officers didn't locate the persons who were involved in the suspected gang fight. However, they barged into the house that my client was at and found him minding his own business in the backyard. After, detaining my client with no reasonable suspicion of criminal activity, a San Bruno Police Officer asked my client to provide his name. The officer claimed that my client gave her a false name and date of birth. The officer who took my client's name told him to wait in the backyard while she went to her car to run him through dispatch. She told him that if he was lying to her that she was going to arrest him when she came back. When she returned my client was gone. One of my client's alleged friend's told the officer that he had escaped by jumping over the backyard fence. Given these facts, the District Attorney was determined to convict my client who was an alleged “gang-banger” of these crimes. However, my client and I were confident that in order to convict my client that the District Attorney would have to argue inconsistent legal theories. We convinced the District Attorney of this and the District Attorney finally realized that it was better to give up before trial than it was to suffer defeat at trial!
