West Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer James Blatt successfully negotiated a “time served” plea bargain for a client originally charged with murder after he anonymously dropped of the victim of a shooting at a local emergency room. In People of the State of California v. Sam Siu (Los Angeles Superior Court, Alhambra Courthouse, case number GA074941), a Los Angeles prosecution, Mr. Siu was arrested after he was identified on an emergency room video camera carrying a man recently shot at Mr. Siu’s residence. The man was pronounced dead at the emergency room and Mr. Siu, along with several others were charged with his murder.
Through extensive negotiations and a lengthy preliminary hearing, James Blatt obtained a dismissal of the murder charge and a time served deal for accessory after the fact (Los Angeles Superior Court, Alhambra Courthouse, case number GA074941). Mr. Blatt had also previously won a not guilty verdict for Mr. Siu in a separate prosecution in which Mr. Siu was charged with the attempted murder of a female escort and her body-guard (Los Angeles Superior Court, Alhambra Courthouse, case number GA068743). Mr. Siu has now been released from custody on both cases.
In addition to Mr. Siu’s cases, the Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of James E. Blatt in recent months have put together a string of victories throughout Los Angeles, avoiding jail for a woman who sold methamphetamine to an undercover officer (Los Angeles Superior Court, Criminal Courts Building , case number BA368991), obtaining a dismissal in a DUI prosecution (Los Angeles Superior Court, Malibu Courthouse, case number 9MB00676) and a cocaine prosecution in Orange County (Orange County Superior Court, Harbor Justice Center , case number 09HF1359), a not guilty verdict in a theft prosecution (Los Angeles Superior Court, Burbank Courthouse, case number 8BR04074), and a dismissal of a “three strike” prosecution in the Lancaster Courthouse (Los Angeles Superior Court, Lancaster Courthouse, case number MA044081).
