, Dan E. Chambers entered a not guilty plea on Ms. Sandoval’s behalf, signaling his firm’s intention to fight aggressively
Los Angeles, Ca (PRWEB) February 12, 2015
On Tuesday, February 10, Erika Sandoval made her first court appearance in connection with her alleged killing of ex-husband Daniel Green. Sandoval appeared in company of leading Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Dan E. Chambers, who has been selected as her counsel.
In court on Tuesday, Dan E. Chambers entered a not guilty plea on Ms. Sandoval’s behalf, signaling his firm’s intention to fight aggressively to build a strong defense for 28-year-old Sandoval.
Considering that Ms. Sandoval stands accused of one count of first degree murder including a special circumstance—charges that carry a potential sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole or possibly the death penalty—the services of a highly respected, award-winning defense attorney such as Dan E. Chambers are obviously vital.
Fortunately, Dan E. Chambers is no stranger to high-stakes cases, having served as a defense attorney for countless clients accused of a variety of serious crimes in the course of his 23-year legal career. As he always does, he will bring his experience as a former prosecutor to bear on Ms. Sandoval’s case, putting himself in the district attorney’s shoes in order to predict the prosecution’s strategy and prepare arguments to undermine it.
The entire staff of Chambers Law Firm will be working together to secure evidence disproving the charges against their client. This includes disproving the first-degree murder charge as well as the special circumstance in the case, namely Tulare County District Attorney Tim Ward’s assertion that Ms. Sandoval was “lying in wait” in Green’s home on the day of the murder.
Several key pieces of the prosecution’s evidence which have not yet been confirmed to the press, such as the time of Green’s death and the gun allegedly used in his murder, will need to be thoroughly investigated as well.
Ms. Sandoval is currently being held without bail in the Bob Wiley Detention Facility in Tulare County with her preliminary hearing scheduled for March 18.
