Client represented by the experienced criminal defense attorneys at Wallin & Klarich was found not guilty on domestic violence charges by a jury at trial in Riverside.
RIVERSIDE, Calif. –Wallin & Klarich is pleased to announce a client represented by the Riverside criminal defense attorneys at Wallin & Klarich was found not guilty on domestic violence charges after a three-day trial.
Our client was facing up to four years in prison, probation, expensive fines, community service and mandatory completion of a 52-week batterer’s program for charges of domestic battery causing a traumatic condition under PC 273.5, dissuading a witness under PC 136.1, and domestic battery under PC 243(e)(1).
Our experienced Riverside defense lawyers underwent extensive negotiations with the district attorney, but the district attorney was unwilling to reduce the charges or offer an acceptable plea bargain. Thus, the case proceeded to trial.
Wallin & Klarich reviewed the facts of the case, conducted a thorough investigation, and meticulously prepared for trial. Through his hard work, our skilled lawyers were able to get expert testimony on the cycle of domestic violence and the battered women’s syndrome excluded from trial.
At trial, our lawyers aggressively advocated for our client. We were able to establish reasonable doubt that our client committed these offenses by punching holes in the prosecution’s case, successfully cross examining the alleged victim and witnesses, and showing that police did not follow proper procedures before charges were filed.
After a short deliberation, the jury returned with a verdict of not guilty on all counts.
“We defended our client vigorously because it was clear that the police, detectives, and district attorney involved in this case were aggressive in charging him. Through our dedication, we were able to raise reasonable doubt in the jury regarding the allegations against our client. Our client was extremely happy with the verdict, and we are grateful that we were able to achieve this outstanding result for our client,” Paul Wallin, Senior Partner at Wallin & Klarich, said.
