State v. Webb

Seth A. Blum

Case Conclusion Date:April 27, 2011

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Not Guilty in 14 minutes

Description:Mr. Webb was accused of Possession of Firearm by a Felon. His estranged girlfriend reported to the police that he had a shotgun in his closet. The police searched and found a gun there. At trial, we called Mr. Webb's Probation Officer who testified that he had searched the house a month earlier and found no gun. We also showed the jury that the detective and police officer who investigated did not mention an alleged confession in reports written at the time of arrest, but added them in supplemental reports written 14 months later, about 10 days before trial.
