ALL CHARGES DISMISSED IN MAJOR GANG RAPE CASE: client, charged with two other defendants in Oakland, Alameda County, California, allegedly drugged and gang-raped a 19 year-old woman. Extensive defense fact and forensic investigation and disclosure of impeachment evidence caused all charges to be dropped against client who was facing more than forty years in prison. Additional charges of possession of marijuana for sale, forgery and receiving stolen property also dismissed.

CASE DISMISSED IN CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CASE - Client was charged with possession of many images of child pornography in Petaluma, Sonoma County, California. Client actually confessed to possession of the child pornography and destroyed some computer components which the police later found. However, forensic analysis and legal research, along with tough negotiations and aggressive stance with the district attorney resulted in all charges being dismissed after we proved that there was no way to prove that the client knowingly possessed child pornography.

A pre-file allegation of rape by a teenager who had been befriended by the family was never prosecuted after client passed a polygraph and his verifiable explanations were communicated to the District Attorney - NO CHARGES FILED.

Prostitution charges dismissed, followed by a factual finding of innocence, so that the defendant has NO criminal record.

NOT GUILTY verdicts or mistrials/dismissals: People vs. Michael Gardner, People vs. Michael Lee, People vs. Kevin Larry and others.
