I am thrilled to announce that last week I defended a case in Jefferson Circuit Court and received jury verdicts of NOT GUILTY on all counts of the indictment!
The charges were Rape in the First Degree and Assault in the Fourth Degree. My client maintained from day one that the act was consensual, and told the jury so when he took the stand in his own defense. The jury obviously believed him, and he walked out of the courtroom a free man.
It was a hard-fought (and hard-won) case, with excellent lawyering on both sides.
Congratulations to my co-counsel, Don Heavrin, and our wonderful (and vindicated) client!
