Stockton defense attorney Leah Gillis wins at trial! In the case of Pete L., Ms. Gillis’ client was charged with violations of Penal Code sections 243(b)-Battery on a Peace Officer; 594-Vandalism; and 148-Resisting arrest. Ms. Gillis was able to get a NOT GUILTY verdict from the jury at trial on all charges!!!
Pete was facing jail time, fines, and years of probation. Violence charges have dramatic and long lasting consequences including a 10 year ban on possession of firearms and a potential lifetime ban by the federal government on the possession of firearms. Pete suffered severe injuries due to the violence of the officers in this case and the NOT GUILTY verdict preserved his ability to pursue legal action against them for his injuries.
If you or a family member has been charged with battery on a peace officer or resisting arrest, you need a local San Joaquin County criminal defense attorney who will fight for you.
