Case #: 17********10A
Our client was accused of burglarizing an apartment while the residents were home hiding in their closet. A few hours after the burglary, our client and his co-defendant were found using credit cards stolen in the burglary at a gas station several miles from the apartment. After being arrested, our client admitted to being at the apartment complex during the time of the burglary and voluntarily provided a DNA sample. DNA matching our client was found on a beer can inside of the burglarized apartment. At trial, the lawyers from the firm pointed out several issues with the State's case. Several alternate theories of defense were presented to the jury explaining the presence of our client's DNA and shifting blame onto his co-defendant. After deliberating for over 10 hours, the jury found our client Not Guilty of all the felony charges.
