A FEW OUTSTANDING RESULTS for clients of The Law Office of Richard Wagner, A Professional Corporation:

On February 1, 2017, on the day set for jury trial, Richard Wagner convinced the Prosecutor – the Los Angeles District Attorney to dismiss the resisting arrest charges against his client in the Downey Courthouse. (People v. AV, Case No. 6DN03137-02).

On February 27, 2017, Richard Wagner persuaded the Prosecutor – the Long Beach City Prosecutor his client was innocent of violating the North Side Longos and Surenos criminal street gang injunction and the case was completely thrown out of the Long Beach aka Governor George Deukmejian Courthouse. (People v. MG, Case No. 6LB05777-01).

On March 21, 2017, attorney Richard Wagner got his client’s vandalism case dismissed in Long Beach at the Governor George Deukmejian Courthouse on the day jury selection was to begin. (People v. CJ, Case No. 7LB00916-01).

On April 12, 2017, Richard Wagner successfully defended his client in the Long Beach Courthouse aka Governor George Deukmejian Courthouse who was prosecuted by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office – essentially for being homeless. Richard Wagner got his client’s case – for violating California Penal Section 647(e), unlawful camping or lodging in a place without the permission of the owner, dismissed!  (People v. VD, Case No. 7LB06740-03).

On May 1, 2017, DUI Attorney Richard Wagner received a formal Set Aside order from the Orange DMV for his client arrested for a DUI and driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08%, or more by the Newport Beach Police Department. Although police reports said Attorney Richard Wagner’s client caused two separate traffic collisions, displayed objective symptoms of intoxication, was driving under the influence of alcohol, had a preliminary alcohol screening test result of 0.11%, and result on a complete different breath test machine of 0.10%, Richard Wagner prevailed and the DMV hearing officer ruled that DMV could not legally justify the suspension of Richard Wagner’s client’s driver license and set the suspension aside (dismissed the case) in the interests of justice.

On June 7, 2017, The Law Office of Richard Wagner got another huge victory for a client at the Van Nuys DMV. Client was arrested for DUI and driving with a blood alcohol concentration over the legal limit by Glendale Police. The police report said the client failed four different field sobriety tests, the results of two preliminary alcohol screening tests (PAS) was 0.09% and breath test results at Glendale police station on the Datamaster (“breathalyzer”) was 0.08%.  However, after the hard-fought DMV Hearing, which included cross-examination of the arresting Glendale Police officer by DUI attorney Richard Wagner, the DMV Hearing Officer ruled the DMV license suspension was not justified and that the DMV license suspension should be set aside. In DMV terminology, a set aside means “Case dismissed!

A notable event for 2017 in California is the Marijuana Legalization Law – Prop. 64, which legalized under California law for adults 21 and over for recreational use: possession, transportation, purchasing, obtaining, and giving away to another adult of up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and up to 8 grams of concentrated cannabis.

Voters also approved Prop. 57 making several significant changes to California’s criminal justice system in the area of Adult Criminal Sentences and Juvenile Criminal Proceedings and Sentencing.

  • California law now allows parole consideration for persons convicted of nonviolent felonies upon completion of full prison term for primary offense.
  • The new law also requires the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to adopt regulations to implement new parole and sentence credit provisions and certify they enhance public safety.
  • Voters approved a significant change to California juvenile law and sentencing by giving the final authority to juvenile court judges to determine whether juveniles age 14 and older should be prosecuted and sentenced as adults, rather than allowing prosecutors the unfettered discretion of filing the case directly in adult court.

In court, Richard talked about the law, science, facts of case, and convinced the jury to find me not guilty. Richard definitely knows how to successfully defend a DUI charge in trial. Thanks to Richard Wagner, the DUI charge against me has gone away like it never happened and I got my life back.” J.I.

Rich is amazing. My husband was charged with Violation of a court order aka gang injunction. From the start Rich expressed his interest in this case, and he wasn’t lying. He was as passionate about taking this case to trial as much as we were. His communication and dedication to this case was beyond what we expected. He is definitely an attorney you want in your corner. Absolutely superb. Needless to say, Rich worked his magic; the charges were dropped. We couldn’t be more happy. Thanks Rich”
