My client, Alex Sorto had his charges dismissed after the Orange County District Attorney’s Office told the judge that they “were unable to proceed” after the judge suppressed the observations of two Costa Mesa Police Officers who arrested him on charges of battery on a police officer [Penal Code section 243d] and three charges of resisting or delaying a police officer [Penal Code section 148a].
Mr. Sorto was present at the Dippity Donuts when a friend was assaulted by another patron. Mr. Sorto wisely left the scene of the assault for his own safety. Unfortunately he was contacted and assaulted by Costa Mesa Police officers who tackled and used a Taser on him for no reason. Fortunately there were video and audio recordings that demonstrated what actually happened.
