Client Charged with Felony Grand Theft Charges Dismissed
Our client was charged with felony grand theft. She was initially offered a mandatory jail sentence. Client had initially utilized the services of the public defender’s office. Our office substituted into the case. After learning about the facts of the case, we came to the realization that our client’s constitutional rights were violated. We thereafter filed a SERNA MOTION which addresses these types of violations.
The District Attorney, after having reviewed our motion, agreed to “submit” on our moving papers, essentially indicating to the court that our position was rightful and that they had no opposition to the challenge we made to dismiss the charges.
The court agreed with our position and in May 2011 the Judge in the Fontana Superior Court dismissed the entire case against our client.
At KIA LAW FIRM, we fight for the rights of our clients. This is another example of how the police believed a crime had been committed, the District Attorney believed that they could prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt and brought charges, and, ultimately, how significant representation at an aggressive level results in a favorable outcome for our client.
Our client was able to avoid a felony conviction, prevent herself from losing her job and keep her record clean.
