Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: Not Guilty
Description: I represented a client who was charged with Home Invasion 1st Degree that went to trial, twice. The first time resulted in a hung jury 11-1 to convict. The case was then tried a second time about 4 weeks later, which usually weighs in favor of the prosecutor. I aggressively represented the defendant in both trials even though after the first trial he asked the court for a different attorney. I did not let his frustration of a hung jury to effect the way I represented him. In the second trial the jury came back not guilty even though there were two eyewitnesses that claimed it was my client. I was able to use my trial skills to totally discredit the witnesses.
