The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC is proud to announce that Attorney
Kerry Armstrong has secured yet another exceedingly favorable result for
one of our clients. In the case of this individual, who was accused of
fraud, Attorney Armstrong was able to prove that his client was actually
the victim of an imposter thief.
The defendant was accused of cashing bad checks and using stolen credit
cards to illegally extract more than $2,500 from banks all over town.
Upon his arrest, however, the accused maintained his innocence and hired
Attorney Armstrong who, after hearing the man's story, came to believe
that he was telling the truth.
According to the client, his wallet had been stolen just days before the
police said the crimes occurred. Attorney Armstrong reviewed the confiscated
bank surveillance footage and noticed that the suspect in the footage
looked remarkably like the client, but was a different person—he
was passing off the accused’s picture ID as his own. With this evidence
and a work alibi, Attorney Armstrong went to the deputy district attorney
assigned to the case.
At first, the DA's Office was skeptical of the evidence that Attorney
Armstrong presented, but it was soon supported by new findings provided
by detectives who had continued to look into the case following the accused's
arrest. In court, the deputy DA dismissed the charges against our client
and even apologized for the hardships that he had suffered due to the arrest.
More remarkably, the judge declared that the accused in this case was "factually
innocent." Because of this, Attorney Armstrong's client will
not even have his arrest on his permanent record. The victory came just
in time for the client—who was facing eviction due to the criminal
charges. He is now a resident in his building again and free of any criminal
record following this ordeal.
We congratulate Attorney Armstrong on yet another legal victory. We're
certain that he will only continue to further our firm's reputation
with the insightful, quality counsel he provides his clients.
