Gary Eto is the criminal defense lawyer for Carmen Reyes Jr., 58, who was initially charged for murder after shooting and killing Sergio Wilms.
Wilms allegedly attacked the young boy and his mother as they were packing the Torrance family’s van for a camping trip around 5 a.m. on Saturday. Reyes, who lives with the family and is the caretaker of the boy’s father, reportedly ran outside after hearing the boy scream, at which point a violent altercation ensued.
Trial Attorney Gary C. Eto had the charges dropped in a homicide case in Torrance, California. Defendant’s bail was $5 million when Gary Eto was hired. The defendant was released three days later, and the charges were dropped.
