All Felony Charges Dismissed (Penal Code 422 [Criminal Threats], Firearm, Prison Priors Etc. on February 9, 2017
Approximately 2 years ago, we met a client who claimed that he was innocent and that he was being falsely accused of a crime. After we conducted our own investigation in the case, we determined that he was telling the truth. We tried to get the case dismissed before preliminary hearing, however, the prosecutor was adamant that our client was “good for the charges”. Therefore, we had no choice but to force the police officer to testify at the preliminary hearing. We poked various holes in the prosecution’s case. However, despite all our work, the Court still believed that there was still sufficient evidence to reasonably believe that our client committed the crime – accordingly, the Court set a trial date.
We never gave up hope. Two weeks before trial, the prosecutor reevaluated their case. The 15 year offer that they had made to our client was taken off the table. They didn’t even offer to settle the case for a misdemeanor. The prosecutor literally dismissed all of the charges against him.
Keep in mind that our client had a significant criminal history, including two prison priors, a perjury charge and a prior DUI. However, due to the lawyering skills of Mr. Feyzjou, A Board Certified Specialist in Criminal Law, the prosecutor finally agreed to get rid of the entire case.
On February 9, 2017, the criminal charges were dismissed. Our client went home and called Mr. Feyzjou to have dinner. A remarkable evening of wine, good food and celebration was in order to celebrate the innocence of a man falsely accused of a crime.
