For the Commonwealth: Assistant District Attorney Zach Wynkoop
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 Zach Wynkoop of our Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit helped secure justice recently in a case involving a defendant convicted after a waiver trial for Attempted Murder and Possession with Intent to Distribute. The defendant was accused of entering a restaurant and firing a gun at a former partner’s head, narrowly missing her. A search warrant was executed at the defendant’s residence and several hundred grams of heroin were seized. The defendant is scheduled for sentencing before the Hon. Lucretia Clemons in January 2021.
