“Not Guilty” … the two sweetest words a person accused of a crime could hope to hear.
After 8 days of trial, and only 4 hours of deliberation, an Iron County jury rendered their verdict of “Not Guilty” for our client acquitting her of all charges. Our client, a mother of four who was babysitting two of her friend’s children, was charged with murder and first degree child abuse, punishable by life in prison, after a child in her care suffered accidental injuries causing the child’s death. We were able to overcome the prosecutor’s three expert witnesses by showing how biased their investigations were conducted. This was a tragic incident that “child abuse advocates” turned into criminal charges.
