Charles A. Pacheco

Charles Pacheco Criminal Defense Attorney Stockton CaliforniaMr. Pacheco has over 20 years of experience as a defense attorney, as well as a background in law enforcement as a California Highway Patrol officer and as a criminal defense investigator, that he brings to bear on behalf of his clients.

He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice from California State University, Sacramento, and a Juris Doctorate from Lincoln Law School in Sacramento. He was admitted to the Bar in 1987.

After spending 6 years as a California Highway Patrol officer, Mr. Pacheco worked as a licensed private investigator on more than 20 death penalty cases. He was the lead investigator in the case of the United States v. Lynette Fromme, the Manson cult follower who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford. Mr. Pacheco also has testified as an expert in accident reconstruction.

Mr. Pacheco has defended those accused of murder in death penalty cases and has achieved numerous acquittals in homicide cases. As a result of his experience as a law enforcement officer, Mr. Pacheco gained complex knowledge of DUI’s, and as a defense attorney he has represented numerous defendants in DUI cases.

In the case of Helmandollar v. the Department of Motor Vehicles (1992) 7 Cal.App. 4th, 52, Mr. Pacheco won a ruling that the Department of Motor Vehicles must restore the driver’s licenses of defendants who are acquitted on charges of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or more (Vehicle Code section 23152, subdivision(b).)

“My philosophy is that the first 10 amendments of the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights, is a road map or a guide for the detection and ultimate prosecution of criminal conduct,” Mr. Pacheco says. “A defense attorney must ensure that his client’s constitutional rights are not violated during that process.”
