LeGrand Law Secures Dismissal of Criminal Charges Against Inauguration Day Protester

LeGrand Law is pleased to announce the dismissal of all charges against our client, who was arrested while protesting the election of President Trump on Inauguration Day last year.

Our client was among numerous individuals charged by federal prosecutors with felony rioting, conspiracy to riot, and destruction of property in connection with the Inauguration Day protests.

Late last week, Chief Judge Robert E. Morin of the D.C. Superior Court dismissed with prejudice the conspiracy to riot charge against our client, as well as several of his co-defendants, as reported by the Washington Post. The dismissal with prejudice was a sanction against the government for intentionally misrepresenting information and wrongfully withholding evidence favorable to our client and the other defendants, in violation of the government’s obligations under Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963). 

LeGrand Law is grateful that our young client is finally free from the burden of criminal charges and an impending trial that was hanging over his head for over a year and a half, and that he can now move on with his life.
