Construction Fraud Charges Dismissed in Circuit Court

One of our lawyers had a unique Circuit Court trial victory in Henrico County.  Our client was facing criminal charges in Henrico County.  The client was charged with Construction Fraud in violation of § 18.2-200.1.  The client and attorney had met numerous times to prepare for trial and defense.  They worked together and were able to get related charges dismissed.  After discussing potential offers made by the Commonwealth, our client and the attorney decided the best action would be to go to trial.  Trial is never a certain thing and there was certainly a great amount of risk involved, our client was facing a Felony conviction and up to 20 years in prison.  The Commonwealth’s Attorney handling the case put on a very strong case in support of their position.  We put on evidence in support of our defense.

After hearing closing arguments the Court found our client guilty…  But, that was not the end of the trial.

Our attorney asked orally for a motion to reconsider the evidence.  After spirited argument from our attorney the Court changed its position, and found there was not proof beyond a reasonable doubt.  Our client was found not guilty.
