Conviction Reversed and New Murder Trial Granted

Client was convicted in a cold case for murder charges and raised the issue of juror misconduct on appeal from a life in prison sentence. The case went up to the California Supreme Court twice and ultimately was sent back for a hearing on what the facts of the juror misconduct were, and, even if the jurors did mention the fact that the defendants did not testify, was it prejudicial to the jury trial. Client’s family had been consulting with Attorney Nicholas Rosenberg for some time and hired him to handle the evidentiary hearing and fight to get a new trial.

After getting an independent investigator, and bringing a witness who was avoiding subpoenas for months into court, and treating the case just like a trial, Nicholas Rosenberg was able to prevail on the motion for a new jury trial. Two days later, Attorney Nicholas Rosenberg successfully argued to reduce his client’s bail from $ 1 Million to One Hundred Thousand Dollars, and his client was released on bail after spending 5 years in prison. Using his litigation approach of investigation and consultation with expert witnesses, Nicholas Rosenberg was able to achieve a major victory and give his client a chance at getting a fair trial.
