Arfa Gets Client Serving a Life Sentence Released

Client serving a 35 year to life sentence goes home after a 10-year battle after Arfa proves prosecutor suppressed evidence. After ten years, five months and fifteen days, two trials and two reversals on appeal, the prosecution and defense reached an agreement releasing Daniel Clarke from state prison. Attorney Fay Arfa fought for Clarke's freedom for years, never giving up hope. Clarke had been serving a sentence of 32 years to life in prison for six felonies, including the rape of pregnant T.G., the mother of his son. Forensic evidence proved Clarke's accuser had lied and self­ inflicted her wounds to keep Clarke from gaining custody of their son.
