Mr. Rosenblat’s most recent not guilty came on May 13, 2016 when the judge found the defendant not guilty of domestic battery. The alleged victim claimed that the defendant pushed a heavy object into her knocking her to the ground. In order to prove its case, the Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney called two witnesses to testify, the alleged victim and a Chicago Police Officer. Mr. Rosenblat’s cross-examination of the complaining witnesses exposed the fact that she could not see who caused the object to be pushed into her. The cross-examination also uncovered many inconsistencies in her testimony that defied common sense. The defendant was found not guilty without the defense calling a single witness.
On March 30, 2016, Mr. Rosenblat’s client was found not guilty of aggravated robbery, a charge that carried a maximum sentence of up 30 years in prison. The complaining witness added facts in his testimony, which he never told to the police even though he was interviewed multiple times. Mr. Rosenblat’s cross-examination of the victim’s prior inconsistent statements showed that he was not credible. Mr. Rosenblat called several witnesses in the defense case in chief, including the defendant. Defendant was found not guilty of all charges.
