Attorney Juan L. Guerra, Jr. Secures Not Guilty Verdict in Indecent Exposure Case

Posted By Guerra & Farah, PLLC || 16-Mar-2016

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' testimony.

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.
