Criminal- Man Acquitted of Attempting to Kill Officers by Jury
Two Sheriff’s Deputies accused my client of trying to kill them by allegedly grabbing one of the deputy’s service pistol and “attempting to dislodge it from the holster in order to shoot them.” The two (2) felonies were Class A Felony charges, carrying a range of punishment of up to 30 years or life in prison on each charge, a grim outlook for a 26 year old man with a fiancé and a six week old baby at the time of trial. Unwilling to accept any plea offer, my client wanted a jury trial. After two days of jury trial and having heard 15 witnesses testify for the State and for my client, the jury acquitted my client of the felonies. He went home to his family that night, and ultimately received misdemeanor probation.
