Case Results

Client: Michael S.

Charge: First Degree Murder

Facts: Client was a 16-year-old boy accused of a home invasion murder while wearing a mask. We proved that the witness identification of our client was faulty and that the jailhouse snitch was lying. We were able to find the true murderer by continuing to investigate the case.

Result: After the first trial, the jury came back 11 to 1 in favor of Not Guilty. A second trial was scheduled. In the meantime, we kept chipping away at the case until finally, the state dropped all charges just before the start of the next trial. It is extremely rare that the state ever completely drops a capital murder case.
