For the Commonwealth: Assistant District Attorney Jake Segal
Assistant District Attorney (ADA) Jake Segal of our Major Trials Unit helped secure justice in a case involving a defendant charged with Robbery, Burglary, Conspiracy, and weapons-related charges for a gunpoint home invasion in which the defendant and other suspects bound and physically assaulted four victims. Prior to the reopening of Philadelphia courts, ADA Segal prevailed in a pre-trial motion to have DNA evidence introduced at trial. This evidence was instrumental in securing the defendant’s open guilty plea to all felony charges. The defendant is scheduled for sentencing before the Honorable Judge Perez on December 11th.
