All Charges: Not Guilty by Jury
Earning acquittals on all counts for a case involving multiple violent felonies is rare. In this case, Criminal Defense Attorney Carl Jordan achieved the four acquittals through hard work and by strategically demonstrating to the jury the evidentiary weaknesses in the case.
When a Detroit man was accused of shooting and leaving a man dead, he proclaimed his innocence, but Wayne County prosecutors brought criminal charges. Unfortunately, the man had a prior felony conviction on his record. If convicted, he faced serious consequences, including substantial prison time. Concerned with avoiding prison time, he did the right thing and hired Attorney Carl Jordan who reviewed the evidence against him and deemed the evidence to be weak and the credibility of the witness as questionable. With that in mind, he moved to push the case to trial.
With Judge Michael M. Hathaway presiding, Attorney Jordan's defense was that the evidence and witness were questionable, his client was innocent and that it was someone else who attempted to kill the man. In a three day trial, Attorney Jordan convinced the jury to acquit the man on all charges and find him: NOT GUILTY! Attorney Jordan saved the man’s liberty and the well-being of his family.
