solid cases, investigate the little details, and uphold our clients’
rights in the courtroom. Our firm is proud to share stories of how we
successfully help wrongfully accused clients achieve beneficial outcomes.
Here is one case result where attorney Jared M. Thompson won a complete
acquittal for an innocent client:
Mr. Thompson's client was charged with attempted first-degree murder.
He was also charged with assault with a deadly weapon with great bodily
injury, and weapons enhancements for all the charges. In total, there
were 6 different charges against our client, and he was facing 31 years
to life in prison.
The Truth Behind the Accusation
We knew that our client was innocent of the accusations. After a thorough
investigation, Mr. Thompson determined that he had been wrongfully accused
by the real attackers. Our client’s father-in-law and friends actually
jumped him and attacked him while he was dropping off his stepdaughter.
Through Mr. Thompson's investigation and strategic legal motions,
we were able to have the charge of first-degree murder enhancement dropped
before the trial.
A Tough Battle in the Courtroom
Even though one of his charges was dropped, Mr. Thompson's client still
faced 31 years in state prison. The trial lasted 2 weeks, and the best
deal the prosecution offered was 18 years of incarceration. For our client,
that would still mean 18 years of his life lost forever.
Mr. Thompson was confident his client was innocent of the charges, and
he was convinced that the witnesses against him were lying. Through a
lot of preparation and diligent investigation, Mr. Thompson able to save
him from spending most of his life behind bars. In the end, his client
was fully acquitted of all charges.
