In a win for Stockton Criminal Defense Attorney Allen Sawyer during a case-management conference, the judge granted a bail reduction from $750k to $100k. While this is still much more than the family can afford, it’s a step in the right direction.
The case centers around a man accused of molesting his wife’s daughter. Allen Sawyer was hired to represent the man accused of the crime. Sawyer reasoned that the accused was not a flight risk, he has ties to the community, and he should be given “the benefit of the doubt that he would show up in court.” Read full article.
Judge Shawn Bessey agreed with many of Sawyer’s points and issue a bail reduction to $100,000. While the DDA feels the original “bail amount is set as appropriate,” Attorney Allen Sawyer successfully argued the case and was able to knock down the bail amount for his client.
