DA Dismisses Robbery and Kidnapping Case After Attorneys at the Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman Discover Incorrect Identification

Robbery and Kidnapping Charges Gone Wrong

(Los Angeles, California) February 22 – For the attorneys at the Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman, a strong defense begins with having a committed advocated on your side who will thoroughly investigate the facts of the case to reveal problems with the prosecution’s case.

The dedication of the defense attorneys at the firm made all of the difference for one 17 year-old boy, who faced 84 years in the California State Prison for robbery and kidnapping charges after he was incorrectly identified.  Several young men were tied to a series of burglary/kidnapping cases involving a chain of electronics retail stores in the Los Angeles area.  They were accused of entering the stores near closing time and using guns to herd workers into back rooms while stealing from the stores.  Ultimately cell phones led authorities to nab some of the individuals arrested, but eye-witness identification was the key to most of the arrests.  Unfortunately, the detectives and prosecutors failed to inspect those identified closely and arrested one young man whose picture was not on display but incorrectly attributed to him.

The courts are increasingly aware of problems with suspect identification. In this case, the client was not included in the line-up but misidentified based on photocopies of a six-pack of photographs. Once the attorneys at the Law Firm of Daniel R. Perlman obtained and examined the six-pack of color photographs, their detailed investigation revealed that their client was not represented in the line-up. With pressure from the defense team, the District Attorney ultimately agreed to dismiss the charges against their client.

DISMISSAL: The Only Option

Digging into the details hidden in hundreds of pages of discovery in this case made all of the difference to this client. Had the client gone to trial and lost or been pressured into accepting a plea deal, he would have spent the rest of his life in prison.

The importance of an aggressive defense cannot be underestimated. To contact Daniel R. Perlman or any of the criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman, call 213-514-8324 or visit their website at www.danielperlmanlaw.com.
