Fiumara & Milligan Law PC—Recent Criminal Defense Results

Our team of experienced, dedicated and highly skilled criminal defense attorneys has over 60 years of combined criminal defense experience working for you.  

We work tirelessly on every aspect of your case from arraignment through dismissal and/or sentencing to get you the most favorable outcome possible under the law. If trial is necessary, then we leave no stone unturned and present a vigorous and zealous defense until acquittal. WE are not afraid to go to trial!

Here is a partial Listing of the Law Firm’s recent Criminal Defense Results that we achieved for our satisfied clients:

JURY TRIAL ACQUITTAL–Client was charged with Penal Code 273a (b)—Endangering child or causing or permitting child to suffer physical pain, mental suffering or injury. The client’s daughter testified (she was 13 years old at trial, about an incident that occurred when she was 12) that her father punched her in the face “with a closed fist” leaving a scar and then wrapping a rope around her neck so she couldn’t even “swallow her saliva.”

Despite the daughter’s repeated testimony that on multiple occasions her father had punched her in her face with a closed fist and left a scar, the jury did not believe her.  The accuser’s testimony during trial that our client tied a rope around his daughter’s neck and said in Spanish that “I am doing this, so you die,” was also disbelieved.

The state’s witness tried to convince the jury that the daughter’s injury to her lip was consistent with a punch to the face or repeated strikes with a hard object. After counsel had the Jurors look closely at the photos and to our argument to the contrary, there was enough reasonable doubt to acquit the defendant—A victory!

We encouraged our client to testify which was a wise decision in this case. He was a more credible witness than his daughter and therefore convinced the jurors of the truth–that his daughter had a melt down and that during this emotional upheaval he put her in a “time out.”  She became so hysterical that she injured herself. Hence the injury was not caused by the father nor was it intentional.

The jury returned a verdict of – NOT GUILTY

“The Right Attorney Makes All the Difference“-Preparation, knowledge of the law, and acting quickly on our feet yields tremendous results!
