Share Article

A San Jose man was released from jail after 11 of 12 jurors found him not guilty on child molestation charges. The verdict was another win for his legal team, Bay Area Defense Associates, which is the most successful child molestation defense litigation firm in Santa Clara County.

Bay Area Defense Associates has successfully defended more child molestation cases than any other defense attorneys in Santa Clara County.

After three years in jail, a local man accused of molesting a 10-year-old relative was set free after being found not guilty by 11 of 12 jurors. The hung jury in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara [Case No. C1069410] is the latest in a string of victories for San Jose criminal defense attorneys Bay Area Defense Associates, which has the strongest record of successfully defending child molestation cases of any Santa Clara County defense litigation firm.

The San Jose Mercury News noted that the case “is among an unusually high number of child molestation trials in Santa Clara County this year that did not result in convictions. Typically, suspected molesters are found guilty in all but one or two such trials.” But this year, 43% of child molestation cases have ended in acquittal or deadlock.

Bay Area Defense Associates has been the defense team in a high number of these cases that have not ended in conviction. The District Attorney's office advised Mercury News reporter Tracey Kaplan that in the past two years, only three cases in Santa Clara County have resulted in acquittal at trial. Although Bay Area Defense Associates was not named, of those three cases, two of the acquittals were achieved by Bay Area Defense Associates lawyers.

The article also described the near-flawless record established by the Santa Clara County prosecutor's office in years past in the trial of such matters. In 2009, only one case resulted in an acquittal; astonishingly, that case was also tried by Bay Area Defense Associates attorneys.

Bay Area Defense Associates has been responsible for 75% of all “not guilty” verdicts in child molestation trials in Santa Clara County in the past three years. This staggering statistic irrefutably establishes Bay Area Defense Associates as the premier child molestation defense firm in Santa Clara County.
