An attorney was recently disbarred from the practice of law by the California State Bar for his failure to properly defend a client in a robbery trial.
At the defendants first trial the lawyer called an expert witness who testified as to the unreliability of eyewitness testimony. In addition during the first trial the lawyer called several witnesses to support the defendants alibi as well as to the lack of motive for the defendant to commit the crime. The jury was unable to reach a verdict at the end of the first trial.
At the retrial on the same charges the California criminal defense attorney failed to call the expert witness and failed to call to the stand many of the key witnesses who testified for the defense at the first trial. The defendant was found guilty at the conclusion of the second trial.
During the state bar investigation the lawyer failed to cooperate with the investigation. The lawyer was disbarred for his conduct in the matter that resulted in his client being found guilty of robbery.
