Case Conclusion Date:November 19, 2008
Practice Area:Criminal Defense
Outcome:Aquittal by jury
Description:Client charged with robbery and murder, but was innocent. State's witnesses gave multiple conflicting statements prior to trial and trial testimony did not match forensic evidence (was not even close). The state's professional witnesses (officers, medical examiner, coroner) presented evidence that was helpful to the defense, and Ms. Reece was able to discredit the state's non-professional witnesses. Jury was out for an hour and came back with acquittals on both charges.
