A Sacramento federal jury today returned not guilty verdicts on all counts for all four defendants in Judge Karlton's last jury trial before his retirement after 35 years as a district judge in United States v. Charikov, No. 2:12-CR-0003-LKK. Congratulations to my co-counsel, defense attorneys Toni White, Dan Koukal, and Tim Pori. I had the honor of giving the last defense closing argument before Judge Karlton.
And thanks to our expert witness, Prof. William K. Black. (Much) more later.
