In a pivotal case this week, Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys from Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP were able to secure a not guilty verdict for a Santa Maria man who had been charged with murder. On Monday, a jury from the Santa Barbara Superior court found Lessem & Newstat's client not guilty of homicide. The man was also vindicated of discharging a firearm and gang charges in relation to the murder charge.
The verdict came after a three and a half week trial and two full days of jury deliberation. The defendant, a 25-year-old man from Lompoc, was charged with murder after an early morning altercation at a party that left one victim dead from a gunshot wound.
