Imprisonment for Life Without Eligibility for Parole

First Degree Murder -- Not Guilty by jury

In the case of People v Takais Brown, the charge was first degree murder. The defendant, 6-foot-8 former University of Georgia power forward who played professionally in Slovenia and Finland was facing up to life in prison if convicted of first-degree murder. He was found with the decedent’s watches in his pocket and the murder weapon in his apartment. In addition, he lied to the police about how these very incriminating items came in to his possession.

The trial lasted 23 days. Hundreds of exhibits were presented and numerous witnesses were called by the government to try and convict Takais Brown. The jury deliberated less than three hours. The verdict? NOT GUILTY. He was ordered freed after having been jailed for approximately two years in the Genesee County Jail awaiting trial.
