Commonwealth v. T.D.

Commonwealth v. T.D.


Defendant was arrested for aggravated assault, robbery, and gun charges after allegedly brandishing a firearm at a center city business and stealing cash from a safe. T.D. was facing a mandatory minimum 10-20 years in jail under Pennsylvania’s three strike law. Three employees identified T.D. as the person committing the crime. However, a vigorous defense investigation revealed that the crime could have been an inside job, and that T.D. had an alibi, which was presented at trial. On cross examination, the identifications made by the eyewitnesses were picked apart and the end result was a verdict of not guilty on all charges.
