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.
