C. B. August, 2016
Charge: Attempted Especially Aggravated Robbery, Attempted Aggravated Robbery.
Original Offer: 30 years.
Strategy: Highlight the credibility issues of the state’s key witnesses. They were not telling the truth and we made sure the jury knew it. This case contained a recorded confession by C. B., two photo identifications of C. B., and incriminating text messages sent by C. B. This case came down to who the jury believed. By highlighting the inconsistencies of the state’s witnesses we were able to establish not only reasonable doubt, but absolute doubt.
Outcome: NOT GUILTY VERDICT FROM A JURY.
