2008:

FELONY RESISTING ARREST WITH FORCE (PC 69), Santa Clara County, This case (guilty verdict) was on appeal before the California 6th District Court of Appeal from 2008–2010.
In May 2010, the CONVICTION was REVERSED IN FULL on appeal, and remanded for NEW TRIAL — a fair trial this time! (Supreme Court review possible but not likely.)

2007:

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE (PC 273.5): NOT GUILTY
Addendum: Client’s California State Licensing for Real Estate and Teaching Certificate protected. Case involved visible injuries but accidents do happen, and the jury agreed.

2006:

1st degree MURDER trial: NOT GUILTY
2nd degree MURDER: NOT GUILTY
Voluntary MANSLAUGHTER: NOT GUILTY
Addendum: Case had once been tried by jury before DOUGLAS FOX, ATTORNEY AT LAW was retained. At that first trial, the jury could not reach a decision (“hung jury”); numerically they were divided 10–2 in favor of a guilty verdict on 1st Degree Murder. Client was out of custody on bail when he made the best decision of his life: to fire his first lawyer and hire Mr. Fox. The client never did another day in jail. Big win!

2005:

RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY WITH INTENT TO RAPE:
Client faced life in prison. Found NOT GUILTY of Residential Burglary.
Addendum: NOT GUILTY verdict saved client from automatic life sentence. Client sentenced to prison for mid-terms not aggravated sentence on other sex charges. Many other allegations of forcible sex related to three (3) additional alleged victims DISMISSED after trial.
