Robbery Acquittal – Los Angeles Superior Court, LAX
Our client was charged with multiple counts of robbery with a firearm at a fast food restaurant. Client was seen at the drive through window of the restaurant subsequent to the incident, his license plate was taken down, and detectives placed his photograph in a six-pack photographic lineup. Client was positively identified as the culprit by four employee/victims and was facing 17 years in prison. The defense employed an eyewitness identification expert at trial and we demonstrated the suggestiveness of the photographic six-pack, the suggestiveness of the procedures used by law enforcement, the discrepancies in the description of the suspect, and lack of corroborative evidence against the client. Our client was acquitted of all counts after a five-day jury trial.
Fred and David, Thank you for being so helpful and supportive right now. I am confident that I have my own “dream team” to get me through this. I know you will do the best you can with what you got and I am optimistic about the outcome. I am dedicated to making things “right” so please let me know if there is anything further I can do or if you need any more I information. Although the circumstances behind me meeting you weren't ideal, I am very thankful and appreciative you are both helping me through this. ~ N.C.
