    Outcome:
    Dismissed
    Description:
    J. B. was charged with assault and battery with intent to kill (ABWIK or attempted murder), following an incident where a corrections officer was shot in the head at a convenience store in Florence, S.C. J. B. had represented himself at his first trial and was convicted of conspiracy but the jury hung on the ABWIK charge. Before J. B. was released from his prison sentence the prosecutor decided to retry the ABWIK charge, and J. B. was detained again in the Florence County Detention Center. After J. B. spent eight years in either jail or prison for a crime he did not commit, Bobby Frederick took J. B.'s case and discovered that, in the first trial, the prosecution had not disclosed DNA evidence from the crime scene which could have proven that J. B. was not present when the shooting occurred. All remaining charges were dismissed against J. B., and he was released.
