Trial Update: Hung jury verdict prosecution unable to convict client at trial
Felony-PC 288(a) Lewd act child under 14yrs
This is a case that went to trial. We were able to successfully persuade the Jury that the charges against Mr. Llamas were unsubstantiated. The jury was deadlocked after having attempted to reach a verdict. In the criminal defense world, a hung jury results in a mistrial. This means that the Prosecution was unable to persuade 12 jurors that our client is guilty. Preventing a conviction is always a win.
