My significant other is currently 6 years into a 14 year prison sentence for multiple charges in Missouri. The charges include: Discharge/shoot fire arm at or from motor vehicle, shoot at a person... 1st offense Felony B, Assault 2nd degree and Armed criminal action. As well as, resisting arrest or detention by fleeing creating a substantial risk of serious injury or death and prior and persistent offender. The last claims he does not contest. The Greene County officer claims he heard what sounded like a shot from a large claiber firearm, before the defendant fled. The officer admits he did not witness the defendant posses or operate the firearm or flash from the muzzle. No shell casings were recovered from the scene. The supporting evidence, is testimony from a female in the vehicle at time of the chase. Whom was high on narcotics and found to be in possession of heroin and meth. When asked what the gun looked like she claimed it was big and black like the cops carry. She was never charged with possession. The other witness in the vehicle initially corroborated with law enforcement, but later testified he’s not sure what happened has he was extremely high.
I switched this to the appropriate category of appeals.
Regardless of the question which is not clear, the time period is way too long to obtain relief unless there is ACTUAL innocence
