A Dooly county case involving Armed Robbery was dismissed after we investigated the case
The Defendant was arrested and accused of having drugs. We argued that the drugs belonged to the co-defendant and demanded a trial to prove it. The co-defendant finally pled and since the state had no evidence any of the drugs belonged to the Defendant, it dismissed the case against our client.
The Defendant proceeded to trial under a different attorney. He was convicted of Homicide for allegedly pushing his wife in front of an oncoming vehicle. When the case went to trial, the attorney failed to bring in two highway patrol officers that said the state’s witnesses could not have seen what they testified to at trial. We argued that constituted ineffective assistance of counsel. The Court agreed and granted the Defendant a new trial.
