Stockton Criminal Lawyer Gets Domestic Violence Case Dismissed

Stockton defense attorney Lance Jacot of The Jacot Law Firm recently had another victory. In the case of Konstantinos A, Mr. Jacot’s client was charged with violations of Penal Code section 243(E)- domestic violence battery; and Penal Code section 591.5- Damage to Wireless Communication Device. Mr. Jacot was able to get the case dismissed without his client having to go to trial.

If you or a family member has been charged with a domestic violence crime, you need a local San Joaquin County criminal defense lawyer who will fight for you. Konstantinos’ case originally was in the Manteca Courthouse. However, because of budget cuts, trials in San Joaquin County are no longer held in the outlying courthouses (Manteca, Lodi, and Tracy). Once the case was sent to Stockton, attorney Lance Jacot was able to get the case dimissed.

Konstantinos was facing jail time, fines, and having to complete a 52 week domestic violence program. Domestic violence charges have dramatic and long lasting consequences, and if you have been charged with any domestic violence related charge, you should contact defense attorney Lance Jacot.

Death penalty off table in separate slayings

December 18, 2012 12:00 AM
STOCKTON – The death penalty has been taken off the table for a 22-year-old man accused of two homicides within two months.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Ron Freitas announced Monday his office will not seek capital punishment for Percy Camel, who is charged in the December 2009 homicide of Roberto Hernandez, 21, and the February 2010 slaying of Francisco Bernardino, 24.

“I believe that life without the possibility of parole will be an appropriate sentence in this case,” Freitas said.

Freitas said the District Attorney made its decision based on a few factors: the length of time it takes to exhaust appeals, the state’s reluctance to affirm the death penalty, and the religious-based wishes of the victims’ relatives.

The shootings of Hernandez and Bernardino took place amid a surge of violence in southeast Stockton.

Hernandez was among a group of men shot on a sidewalk at Skyline Drive. Bernardino also was shot near that neighborhood.

Camel is due in court Thursday.

Stockton Attorney Lance Jacot Gets Embezzlement Case Dismissed

DeNeille Thompson pleads not guilty in local embezzlement case By Jordan Guinn

News-Sentinel Staff Writer Lodi News-Sentinel

DeNeille Richie Thompson, 61, entered a not guilty plea against four felony charges in Lodi Superior Court on Thursday morning. Thompson is charged with conspiracy, forgery, falsification of documents and grand theft.

Thompson’s wife, Cheryl Jacobson-Thompson, 53, was arrested Jan. 26 for allegedly embezzling nearly $250,000 from Tokay Glass company. The prosecution alleges the embezzlement began in 2005 and that Thompson took $43,000 during that time.

During his request, attorney Lance Jacot said Thompson has appeared at court hearings for his wife and isn’t a flight risk. Thompson works as an entertainer in Las Vegas and would return for his next scheduled court date, Jacot said. District Attorney Stephen Taylor countered by saying he didn’t have any knowledge of full-time work for Thompson.

“He’s worked two times in two years,” Taylor said. “If he were employed, it would be news to us.”

Camel caller

By Scott Smith | Published: April 5, 2011

This morning a caller rang asking a good question about today’s story on Percy Camel. The caller said that he and his mother were talking. He asked: Now that the Public Defender’s Office isn’t representing Camel and the court appointed private Stockton attorney Lance Jacot, who is paying?

The answer is that tax payers will continue to pick up his legal representation.

There’s another point worth mentioning. While Camel for some reason rejected two highly qualified attorneys, Jacot is no slouch. The story may have implied that he gave up good attorneys for a bad one. That’s not the case at all. Jacot about one year ago left the Public Defender’s Office, where he was among the rising stars. He launched his private practice.

If you need a criminal defense attorney who will fight for you, and has been described as a rising star in the Stockton criminal defense community, then contact Lance Jacot of The Jacot Law Firm for a free consultation. [email protected]

The Jacot Law Firm Represents Women Charged With Murder

By The Record

March 25, 2011 12:00 AM
STOCKTON – A 21-year-old woman wanted in connection with a drive-by killing in April was arrested Wednesday upon her return to the United States.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office said Georgina Nunez fled to Mexico after the fatal shooting April 5 in Boggs Tract of Eduardo Cornejo. Acting on information they’d received that she would return, detectives were waiting for her at San Jose International Airport. Nunez was arrested and booked on suspicion of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The investigation of Cornejo’s killing took a strange turn in December, when deputies serving a search warrant at a home in the 5100 block of East Main Street discovered a 25-year-old man who had been kidnapped and tortured.

One woman and four men have been charged with that crime.
