Posted By Emkey Law Firm
A client was charged with retail theft (M1) and hired Emkey Law Firm to defend him against the charges. After reviewing the surveillance footage, it was clear that they had the wrong person. Although the person on the surveillance camera resembled our client, it was clearly not our client. The Commonwealth refused to withdraw the charges. Attorney Emkey filed an Pretrial Motion (Writ of Habeas Corpus). Before the hearing was even held, the Commonwealth informed Attorney Emkey that there was a new "suspect" in the case that was going to be arrested in the near future. Essentially, they had the wrong person! The Commonwealth withdrew the charges against our client because of Attorney Emkey's persistence in the case. Needless to say, our client was extremely happy that he hired Emkey Law Firm!
