LOS ANGELES, March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "They still have an uphill battle," says noted Los Angeles criminal defense attorney, Vincent Imhoff [http://www.criminalattorney.com/firm_attorneys/vince_imhoff_esq.aspx] of the defense's case in the trial of Lonnie Franklin Jr. for ten counts of murder. Mr. Franklin's attorney has argue that the evidence of other individuals' DNA on the victims discredits the prosecution's case.
"The defense has done a good job of distancing Franklin from the two of the ten victims," Imhoff says. But as for the other eight victims, the experienced defense lawyer concedes, "the DNA evidence narrows the field of possible killers so significantly that the other surrounding evidence could fill in the gaps [in the prosecution's case]."
Franklin is accused of the murders of nine women and one fifteen-year-old girl over a span of 30 years, attributed to one killer dubbed the "Grim Sleeper", before his 2010 arrest. "The DA has a strong case," Imhoff contends. The single surviving victim has identified the defendant as her attacker. Franklin is pleading not guilty and the death penalty is being sought.
