Charges Dismissed for Client Facing Special Circumstances Murder Charges

Four individuals were charged in a murder for hire plot in the killing of an East Bay marijuana grower.  A woman was charged with murder for hiring two hitmen from Tennessee to kill her business partner.  Our client was charged with murder because the government believed he assisted the ringleader in organizing the killing and getting the hit team out to California.  After a lengthy hearing with multiple witnesses testifying and vigorous cross-examination by Megan Burns, an Alameda County judge dismissed the homicide charges against our client, ruling that there was “no probable cause” to believe that our client intentionally and knowingly participated in the plot to kill.  After several months in jail for a murder our innocent client did not commit, he was finally freed due to the dedicated advocacy of our firm.
