Attorney Juan L. Guerra, Jr. Secures Acquittal, Probation in Felony Case

Posted By Guerra & Farah, PLLC || 26-Feb-2016

Guerra & Farah, PLLC is happy to announce that yet another successful result has been secured on behalf of one of our criminal defense clients. Due to the stellar work by attorney Juan L. Guerra Jr. our client—who faced two felony assault charges—will now only serve a brief period of probation.

Our client, a 70-year-old male, stood accused of Aggravated Assault Against a Police Officer (a first-degree felony) and Aggravated Assault (a second-degree felony). Both charges involved a firearm: one instance in which he fired three shots at a man who had been providing his daughter narcotics and then another of the accused allegedly pointing the weapon at responding police officers. If convicted, he faced a maximum of 119 years in prison.

Guerra & Farah’s client had refused an early offer to accept a 5-year probation sentence in exchange for a guilty plea. Instead, the client, his attorney Juan L. Guerra Jr. and co-counsel Ricardo Rodriguez went to trial. There, defense counsel aggressively asserted the facts of the case, disputed circumstances of the alleged offenses, and thoroughly challenged the state's case against their client. In particular, attorneys Guerra and Rodriguez were able to prove through physical evidence that their client had not, in fact, pointed his weapon at police officers.

In the end, the jury sided with, the client’s defense team Juan L. Guerra, Jr. and co-counsel Ricardo Rodriguez: they found the client innocent of the Aggravated Assault Against a Police Officer charge and sentenced him to a mere 2-year probation for the Aggravated Assault charge. Due to the bold and effective work of Juan L. Guerra, Jr. and co-counsel Ricardo Rodriguez, our client avoided all prison time and got the rest of his life back.
