State v. R.P.

Chase Ryan Brown

Case Conclusion Date:October 8, 2012

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:State makes generous offer to settle case after jury selection

Description:My client was in custody and charged with Aggravated Assault. If found guilty at trial he very likely would have served 15 years in jail. The State refused to make a reasonable offer so we proceeded to trial. After two hours of picking our jury, the State lost confidence in its case and made a generous offer my client couldn't refuse. He was made eligible for release in only a matter of months. Takeaway: Never underestimate the power of persuasion during jury selection.
