  • Result: Not Guilty

  • Count 1 – Aggravated Battery with a Firearm

Facts

Our client was charged with aggravated battery with a firearm and faced a minimum mandatory 25 year prison sentence if convicted. The victim said that our client shot him multiple times in the thigh. When police arrived on scene, only the victim was there with what appeared to be a gunshot wound. He was hesitant at first to tell police what happened but ultimately said that our client shot him over drugs. Neither a gun nor bullet were ever found. Witnesses accounts of the event were drastically different from the victim’s stories that he gave police.

Outcome

  • Count 1- Our client was found not guilty after a jury trial.
