Court Rules Eighteen Felony Counts Including Conspiracy and Grand Theft are Barred by the Statute of Limitations

Mon 28th Jul 2014, Blog, Case Successes

On July 28, 2014, Jim D. Riddet of Bienert | Katzman obtained a dismissal of all eighteen felony counts including two counts of conspiracy and 16 counts of grand theft. The client was indicted by a grand jury over 3 years ago, but Mr. Riddet was able to obtain a dismissal of that indictment. Thereafter, the District Attorney filed a felony complaint alleging additional charges. After a two-day hearing, the court accepted Mr. Riddet’s argument that all counts were barred by the Statute of Limitations. Two co-defendants had entered pleas of guilty to the charges, and, as a result of the dismissal of Mr. Riddet’s client, their charges are expected to be dismissed as well. No further charges are anticipated.
