Case Results

State v. L.G. (Nevada)

November 2013

Attorneys: Michael Becker & Michael Castillo

Charges: Nevada crime of sexual assault; Nevada crime of lewdness with a minor under fourteen

Courthouse: Eighth Judicial District Court (Las Vegas, NV)

Description: Las Vegas Defense Group demonstrated to the jury that the police failed to conduct an adequate investigation such as doing DNA testing. Additionally, our lawyers pointed out numerous inconsistencies in state witness testimony. The jury unanimously found our client "not guilty" on the lewdness count. As for the rape allegation, eleven of the twelve jurors found our client "not guilty" . . . so the judge declared a mistrial on the sexual assault count. We then filed a writ with the Nevada Supreme Court, which resulted in the rape charge being dismissed. These counts could have carried life sentences.
