Case Results

Oakland Client Charged with Disobeying an Officer and Resisting Resist- Charges have been dismissed.

April 2019

In an Oakland case in Alameda County Superior Court, our client was charged with a
violation of Vehicle Code Section 2800(a) – disobeying an officer, a violation of Vehicle
Code Section 12500(a) – unlicensed driver, a violation of Vehicle Code Section 23103(a)
– reckless driving and a violation of Penal Code Section 148(a)(1) – resisting arrest.
Aggressive negotiations with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office and a strong
mitigation case led to a disposition of a deferred entry of judgment on a lesser charge of
Vehicle Code Section 23103(a) – reckless driving. All other charges were dismissed and
our client is eligible for a full dismissal of the entire case in one year. Client has since
completed his deferred entry of judgment and all charges have now been dismissed.

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
