Client Acquitted of Two Counts of Child Endangerment As A Result of All Twelve Jury Vote of NOT GUILTY
My client was charged with two counts of child endangerment. If my client was convicted of this charge, he was facing jail time, fines, four years of probation, and a year of child abuse classes. Most alarming, if my client was convicted he faced losing the custody of his children. At trial, the prosecution presented photographs, video footage and expert testimony from a CPS worker and an Environmental Health inspector. The prosecution played recorded interview statements between the investigating police officer and my client's children. School officials also testified for the prosecution. After putting up a vigorous fight through cross examination, presenting our own evidence and witnesses, all twelve jurors voted NOT GUILTY and my client was acquitted of both counts of child endangerment.
