Our client was arrested for a theft at a local retail store. The client was adamant that he did not commit any crime. Attorney Bryan Orihel carefully reviewed the evidence and was able to show the state that they had no evidence that proved our client committed the theft. In fact, Bryan showed the state that our client was wrongfully arrested, and was mistaken for the actual perpetrator. The state DISMISSED all charges against our client.
