Not Guilty of Attempted Gang Murder Case in Pomona
Attempted murder can be charged anytime someone takes intends to kill a
person, but does not do so. Under California law, someone convicted of
this crime faces a lifetime in prison with the possibility for parole,
restitution to the victim, fines, and other penalties.
Defenses to attempted murder include:
- Acting in self-defense
- False confession
- Arguing down to lesser charges
- Mistaken identity
When the attempted murder is said to be gang-related, the accused faces
increased sentencing and due to the defendant's gang involvement.
Gang involvement itself is a crime in California. That is why securing
a not guilty verdict for our client was so exciting in this case.
Not Guilty of Domestic Violence in Downey
Domestic violence is defined as any act of assault, battery, or criminal
threat against someone the accused has a close relationship with. Unfortunately,
innocent people are frequently accused of domestic violence when arguing
with their loved ones.
Depending on the extent of the injuries and the criminal record of the
defendant, the sentencing for a domestic violence conviction can differ.
Usually this charge can carry 30 days in jail, a criminal record, and
attendance of a 52-week domestic batterer's class.
Our attorneys combated these accusations, clearing our clients name by
obtaining a not guilty verdict on their behalf and preventing is from
appearing on their record.
Mistrial & Dismissal of Armed Robbery in a Court Building
Robbery occurs anytime someone takes personal property that belongs to
someone else from their immediate person and without their consent. This
is always a felony offense. In addition, being armed is considered a separate
offens with additional punishment.
Robbery itself carries felony probation, two to six years in prison, and
a $10,000 fine. When the suspect is armed, 10 to 25 years in prison can
be added to the sentencing.
Some defenses employed when armed robbery is suspected:
- No force or fear was used when taking the property
- Belief that the accused had a right to the property
- They were not in possession of a weapon
- Lack of evidence
We were able to successfully get our clients charges dismissed after a mistrial.

PCP, heroin, or any derivatives while in possession of a firearm. It is
considered a felony crime that carries up to four years in prison and
