J.G. was arrested and charged with Robbery, aggravated assault, and other theft charges. The charges stemmed from his ex-girlfriend who told police that J.G. and his current fiancée had beat her using their fists and kicked her when she was on the ground. The complainant suffered various injuries to her face and a broken leg. She also accused J.G. of taking her pocketbook with her credit cards, money and cell phone. Using surgical precision, Mr. Montoya was able to highlight several inconsistencies in her story through his cross examination. He also elicited testimony that when seen in totality made complainant’s version not very credible. He also prepped and presented a witness who rebutted the complainant’s version of events. During his closing Mr. Montoya was able to convince the court that the evidence was not enough to sustain the Commonwealth’s case. The court agreed and found J.G. not guilty of all charges.
