Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney Robert M. Bernstein was hired to defend a client, David Brown, who had been charged with seven counts of armed robbery. Brown was accused of robbing medical marijuana dispensaries throughout Los Angeles several times. If he had been found guilty of the charges, he would have faced up to 20 years in state prison, in addition to a number of other penalties, such as probation, drug counseling, large fines, license suspension and more.
Mr. Bernstein argued that Brown has been misidentified, and that he was not involved in the robberies. He was able to effectively argue this point even though there were several witnesses and a video tape of the alleged robbery. Knowing that incorrect eyewitness identification is one of the leading causes of wrongful convictions in the U.S., Mr. Bernstein made sure to argue this point.
After a two-week jury trial in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Mr. Brown was acquitted on all charges. He was found not guilty of all seven counts of armed robbery.
