A St. Louis County man was charged with two counts of robbery in the first degree and armed criminal action, felonies that carried a potential sentence of life in prison. At the preliminary hearing, attorney Muhlenkamp convinced the alleged victim that he had no actual personal knowledge that his client had anything to do with the robbery, and in fact he was robbed by two other men, whom he specifically named at the hearing. The alleged victim’s prior identification of Mr. Muhlenkamp’s client was only the product of a Facebook search on his friend’s cellphone that proved to be completely unreliable. The judge dismissed the case and the State agreed not to reissue charges.
