For the Commonwealth: Assistant District Attorney Jake Segal
For the Commonwealth highlights the important work our prosecutors are doing to help secure justice in specific cases brought by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.
Assistant District Attorney Jake Segal of our Major Trials Unit recently helped secure justice in a case involving a defendant who pleaded guilty to Assault, Firearm charges, and other related offenses after discharging an illegal firearm into a crowded beer store. ADA Segal utilized DNA and gunshot residue to obtain the plea from the defendant, who is scheduled for sentencing before the Hon. Anne Marie Coyle in January 2021.
