Case Conclusion Date: 04.08.2013
Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: NOT GUILTY
Description: MC was charged with various felonies including forgery as a felony of the second degree. He was on video with several co-defendants who were purchasing items with the stolen card at Target. At the trial the complaining witness who had her credit cards stolen testified and gave testimony that was markedly different from the preliminary hearing, which was held several months ago. Mr. Shaffer attacked these inconsistencies relentlessly on cross examination, raising doubt as to who was who at the woman’s store and whether a since fired employee was actually the culprit. After argument judge Convington came back with a verdict of NOT GUILTY on all charges.
