WHAT'S NEW AT THIS SITE FOR SEPTEMBER 2017
- Attorney Kaestner had a blistering 11 day run in Long Beach in July, 2017, achieving the dismissal of 3 separate felony cases for his clients. After one previous attorney told the client to take a “7 year deal,” attorney Kaestner took 27 days to prove his client’s innocence and obtain an outright dismissal on a felony robbery with a strike prior. (P v. Gustavo P., Case No. NA105954.) Five days later, attorney Kaestner negotiated a misdemeanor, no time, resolution on a felon with a firearm charge. (P v. Oscar L., Case No. NA10674.) Six days later, client Juan H. walked free on a felony firearm charge after Kaestner persuaded a judge on a P.C. 995 motion that the gun was possessed in a private, non-public area of Juan’s front yard. (P v. J.H., Case No. NA106318.)
- Other dismissals in 2017 include a felony narcotic case thrown out on illegal search and seizure (P v. Erica.A., Case No. BA446964) and an “infraction plea” on a felony manufacturing of drugs case. (People v. D.Z., Case No. BA435243-01.)
