Theft, Robbery, and Mistaken Identity Case Results

Manhattan Theft Defense Attorney: Successful Case Outcomes

People v. KG

Client was charged in Brooklyn with robbery after the group of individuals who committed the robbery ran from the scene. The client credibly testified in the Grand Jury that minutes earlier he had just returned home from work and walked to the store to purchase take out food for dinner. As the client was walking from home and in the direction of the restaurant, the perpetrators and the complainant ran towards client. The Grand Jury believed the client’s testimony that when the complainant stopped him and accused him of being with the perpetrators, he was walking towards the complainant while the perpetrators were running away from the complainant. The client was the first person that complainant saw and stopped. All charges dismissed by the Grand Jury based upon mistaken identity.
