Domestic Assault (Not Guilty)

 Incident involved a man and his partner. She alleged that he held her down, covered her mouth, and kept her from leaving the room.  St. Louis defense attorneys at People’s Counsel received not guilty verdict after noting that incident was only reported three months later after the defendant called off their engagement. People’s Counsel noted lack of bruises or injury.  Jury found defendant not guilty.

Murder, Armed Criminal Activity (Not Guilty)

St. Louis lawyers at People’s Counsel represented a man who sat in jail for almost an entire year awaiting trial. The defendant claimed the shooting was done in self-defense.  The prosecutor and police did not conduct an investigation for 8 months despite sufficient evidence to free the defendant. The jury saw the injustices carried out by the police and prosecutors and the defendant received a not guilty verdict.  “My client was hung out to dry by the police and the prosecutor.” -Charles L. Barberio

Drug Charges (Case Dismissed)

Charges were brought up against a man who was visiting St. Louis from out of town for business. Police arrested the man for possession of marijuana. Police then illegally searched the man’s hotel room coming across felony drugs. The police officer’s testimony failed to establish probable cause. St. Louis Criminal Defense Attorney Charles L. Barberio of People’s Counsel stated, “It was the legal equivalent of a first-round knockout.”
