The Law Offices of Guerra & Farah, PLLC is happy to announce that attorney
Juan L. Guerra, Jr., along with co-counsel Alan Macias, has successfully secured another not
guilty verdict on behalf of one of our clients. The client stood accused
of indecent exposure.
The alleged incident occurred at a gas station while the client has parked
at a pump. Two witnesses testified that, while at the pump, the client
exposed himself to them. This allegedly occurred during peak traffic hours
early in the morning.
Attorneys Guerra and Macias relied on the testimony of both the client
and his son, which refuted the testimony of the witnesses. The morning
of the alleged offense, as confirmed by the boy, the client drove his
son to school. On the stand, the client explained that he had gone to
the gas station that morning, but realized, upon parking, that he had
forgotten his wallet and left before filling up. This would drastically
reduce his time at the gas pump and contradicts with the two witnesses'
Defense counsel also explored the family history of the client's relationship
with his son: the client had secured custody of his son when the boy was
12 years old. The client was particularly emphatic in his assertion that
he would never do anything as reckless as illegally exposing himself—especially
if it threatened his custody of his child.
In the end, the jury sided with the accused, agreeing that defense counsel
proved that the two accusing witnesses' testimony was not possible
based on the timeline of events. A not guilty verdict was rendered and
the client was free to go. If convicted, the client would have faced up
to 180 days in jail, a fine up to $2,000, sex offender registration, and
a court evaluation of his custody arrangement.
We congratulate attorneys Juan L. Guerra, Jr. and Alan Macias on yet another
courtroom victory on behalf of one of Guerra & Farah, PLLC’s
clients. This case result is exemplary of the kind of staunch advocacy
