State of Oregon vs. Ramiro Quiroz Hernandez
The Oregon Court of Appeals just issued an important victory for the defense in a case handled by our office. A Washington County judge refused to allow cross-examination of the alleged defendant in a sex case, specifically related to the alleged defendant’s motivation for making a false charge against our client. The criminal defense sought to explore her potential motive as it relates to gaining permanent residence status via a U-Visa application as a result of a conviction in this case. The Court of Appeals reversed our client’s conviction and remanded the case for a new trial!
