Michael’s client was charged with murder in a shooting that took place on June 2018. Defense investigators recovered video surveillance that supported our theory of self-defense. During the preliminary hearing, the People called friends of the decedent who were in the car that chased our client. On cross-examination, each witness admitted to drinking all day before jumping in their car to chase and assault the defendant at the direction of the decedent. Using the video surveillance, our strategy revealed significant holes in the People’s case and substantial mitigation materials prepared by our office resulted in a disposition of 3 years and a plea to a lesser charge.
