If convicted, our client would have been sentenced to life in prison. We acted quickly to point out to the District Attorney the inconsistencies in the investigation. We presented evidence that our client acted in self-defense and the District Attorney dismissed the case. Read about how attorney Kevin Marcilliat proved our client’s innocence.
