Adams County District Court, Colorado
The charges were all Felonies: Count 1 First Degree Arson, Felony Third Class and Third Degree Arson, a Felony Fourth Class.
Mr. Tiku was charged in this case where the fire was raging moments after he locked and left his liquor store business for the night. At trial, the prosecutor argued that my client’s financial motive for insurance money was the motive. Deconstructing a sloppy arson investigation by the local fire investigators went a long way in satisfying the jury that an alternative explanation of the source of the fire was sufficient to find Mr. Tiku
Not Guilty on All Counts.
