3 Not Guilty Verdicts
It feels so good just writing that. What an awesome case in the county of San Francisco. This was one of those cases that can just wear you down. You know, we had about 4 or 5 different Deputy District Attorney's on the case while we were trying to resolve the case. The D.A.'s offer was plead guilty on two of the three counts and a 90 day minimum jail sentence. And, oh by the way, you have to serve actual jail time. Ok. Well, when I get an offer like that, I explain to the client that since you are getting the shaft anyway, might as well go down swinging. Fortunately, my client agreed. In a crazy move to an outsider we go for a trial by judge. We had some not so obvious and awesome defense issues in this case. And guess what. The trial judge agreed. Not guilty on all counts! Seriously, this wasn't easy.
