Attorney Dan Nevins won a complete jury acquittal this week in an Aggravated Assault trial in the Berks County Court of Common Pleas. Our client was found not guilty of all 17 counts. The Commonwealth alleged that our client participated in a stabbing at a West Reading hotel. Three co-Defendants had already been sentenced to up to 10 years in State Prison for their roles in the incident. Nevins attacked the credibility of the chief Commonwealth witness by bringing out his various inconsistent statements, drug use, pending criminal charges and other poor character attributes. The jury deliberated for approximately 90 minutes before delivering the acquittal.
