RESULT: CASE DISMISSED BY GRAND JURY
In People v. P.K., the client was charged with Manslaughter 1st Degree after stabbing another man at his girlfriend's house. He faced 25 years in prison if convicted.
After launching his own investigation, it became clear to Mr. Nobles that this was a valid case of self-defense. After extensive preparation, P.K. testified before the Monroe County Grand Jury for over two hours, including a lengthy cross-examination by the Assistant District Attorney.
After due deliberation, the Grand Jury declined to indict the client on Manslaughter or any other lesser charge. Ultimately, the CASE WAS DISMISSED less than a month after the initial arrest, saving the client and his family the time, expense and emotional stress of a trial.
