People v. R.G. (2013) R.G., who was on parole for theft, entered into a house and took a fridge and other items. The police arrested R.G. at the scene. After an extensive review of the pre-trial discovery and an investigation conducted by our lawyers, we revealed that a co-defendant lied to R.G. The co-defendant told R.G. that it was his grandmother’s house and they had permission to take the property. Our criminal defense lawyers were able to convince the prosecutor that R.G. was innocent. All charges were dismissed.
