Client Facing Felony Vandalism Case Dismissed
My client was charged with felony vandalism. The prosecution and the investigating officers had video, eyewitness identifications, photographs, shoe prints and finger/hand print evidence. The prosecution believed it had an iron clad case and refused to dismiss or reduce the charges for my client. After months of preparation for trial, my investigator obtained conflicting testimony from the eyewitness victim. We obtained the shoe and hand print evidence from the police department and sent it to a forensic analyst. The forensic analyst determined that the fingerprint evidence was not a conclusive match. After months of intensive work on this case, the prosecution continued the case on the day set for trial and dismissed the case shortly after.
