What is a Post Indictment Arraignment

August 27, 2011

PIA (Post Indictment Arraignment) Post Indictment Arraignment (“PIA”) is a hearing in which our Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys will accompany the defendant to court and schedule dates for motion hearings and jury trial. Typically, Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys will also have the defendant plead “not guilty” at this hearing. However, even though a defendant pleads “not guilty” does not necessarily mean that the case will go to trial. The vast majority of federal criminal cases resolve prior to jury trial.


Insurance Commissioner Jones Announces Sentencing of Los Angeles Attorney for Insurance Fraud

August 21, 2011

This is great news! We as consumers need more convictions like this. The fiscal impact of insurance fraud is horrible. We’re all paying for it….

Now, I have to make this comment. That Attorney is not the only Lawyer on the block that is involved in anything like this. I know of one in Encino, CA that does the same thing.

Another problem that I see is the economics of criminal prosecution. You see, in Los Angeles County, unless you have a huge dollar amount involved, that woyld potentially be noteworthy in the media, you will mot get your case for insurqnce fraud filed with the D.A. for prosecution. It doesnt matter if its a staged accident ring, an owner give up theft scheme, durable mwdical goods, or a medical mill (to name a few). If the case does not involve a dollar amount that will A.) Bring the D.A. good press, or B.) Have a high enough dollar amount that would easily justify spending the money to take the case to trial, and then C.) Is a complete slam dunk of a cas with all corpus fulfilled and everything easily proven beyond a reasonable doubt…. It just aint gonna get dealt with here in L.A.

Thats pretty tragic! The way I see it, enforcement of the law is not about prestige and fame. Nor is it about how much it costs.  Neither is it about a higher probability that the prosecuter will obtain a conviction.

Its about doing the right thing and protecting the citizens of the State of California.

You dont seek fame for doing that job. You do whatever it takes at any and all costs. And you dont need it spoon fed to you. You work hard and do the absolute best you can at your job!

Ive met some good D.A.’s – dont get me wrong. But, it seems to me that there are those that are more concerned about the politics involved.

I have met a lot of great Investigators at Dept. Of Insurance CDI, and some true experts on the topic in the Insurance industry. My hat is off to them, and they deserve everything!

Here’s novel idea: Maybe the D.A.’s office should step out of the way and let the folks in the trenches do their jobs! Then the D.A. should do theirs-present the evidence, make the arguement, and get the conviction. Hhmmm?
