A client facing five counts of child sexual abuse was released from custody after our criminal defense attorneys at Wallin & Klarich were able to obtain a favorable result at trial.
Tustin, Calif. – A defendant accused of sex crimes against minors was released from custody after the attorneys at Wallin & Klarich, A Law Corporation were able to obtain a positive outcome at trial.
The defendant faced a potential sentence of life in prison for five separate counts of child sexual abuse that allegedly occurred in the 1980s.
Our client consistently denied the allegations. To show the jury that our client was telling the truth, our criminal defense attorneys at Wallin & Klarich focused on the discrepancies in the alleged victims’ stories and the possibility that another person was the actual perpetrator. After three days of deliberation, the jury came back with an 8-4 vote in favor of an acquittal.
Based on this favorable result and extensive negotiations with the prosecution, our client agreed to plead no contest to two counts of misdemeanor assault. Our client was released from custody with credit for time served and will not have to register as a sex offender.
Wallin & Klarich Attorney Jonathan Lynn, who represented our client in the case, said, “A majority of the jury believed that the prosecution did not prove its case and had a reasonable doubt about whether our client was guilty. As a result of our aggressive defense, my client went from facing four mandatory life sentences to being released from jail. We are extremely pleased with the result we were able to achieve in this case.”
Attorney Lynn is an experienced criminal lawyer who has represented hundreds of clients in cases involving sex crimes, child abuse, murder and other serious felonies. He uses his extensive understanding of the law and aggressive advocacy to provide high-quality legal representation for his clients.
