A case of Mistaken Identity….All Charges Dropped for Queens Man facing 15 years in prison
Management Resources Ltd of NY- www.managementresourcesny.com and the Law Firm De Leon & Associates, PLLC (NY & NJ) – http://www.deleonlawyers.com combined efforts were recently successful in convincing the Grand Jury to drop all charges dropped against a Queens man arrested for felony robbery & burglary.
In the summer of 2009, our client was arrested with another individual and charged with a home invasion robbery. During an extensive investigation we were able to establish that the complainant had mistakenly picked our client out in a police line-up.
Maintaining his innocence from the beginning, our client feared he would spend time in prison and never be able to clear his name. He brought in newspaper articles about wrongful accusations and convictions including the Duke Lacrosse Team case. At one point his despair was so overwhelming he pleaded with us to never stop fighting for him even if he was wrongfully convicted.
One of the great lawyers of our time, F. Lee Bailey wrote: “Do not try to fix things by belatedly telling the truth to the nice police detective: he is not your friend. Get a lawyer, and a good one! …you need the best, right now. If his or her skill and experience can ward off an indictment, you will save a lot of grief, embarrassment, and money. If you do get charged, go to trial, and are acquitted, a large segment of the population will always think you got away with something. The ‘damnation of an acquittal’ is to be avoided whenever possible. With proper guidance, an innocent person may well be able to show that he should not be formally accused. …After all, the innocent people are the ones the justice system most often ignores.”
