• Criminal: Man Acquitted of Murder by Jury

  • My client was charged with Murder in the 1st Degree and Armed Criminal Action as a result of a shooting in rural Scotland County, Missouri. Many of the facts were undisputed, with my client acknowledging that he shot the individual multiple times. After a three day trial and four hours of deliberation, my client was acquitted of Murder 1st, Murder 2nd, and Involuntary Manslaughter 1st, being convicted of only a Class D Felony of Involuntary Manslaughter in the 2nd Degree and the Armed Criminal Action Charge. This was an exceptional victory and relief for my client who was only 22 years old at the time.
