Theft Case Dismissed Due to Mistaken Identity
As an experienced criminal defense attorney, Elliot Silver knows all too well that innocent people frequently fall victim to misidentification. Without effective legal representation, a simple mistake can ruin your life. Such was the case for a man accused of theft for using someone else’s credit card. Once attorney Silver became involved, he reviewed the surveillance video of the alleged transaction and revealed to the prosecutor that it was clearly not his client on the recording. In the face of such compelling evidence, the case was dismissed, and attorney Silver’s client avoided serious harm.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
