National Association of Legal Investigators Award

I was honored to receive an award by NALI for an article that I had written for the Legal Investigator.  This was a case where our client was arrested for capital murder along with an accomplice.  He was charged with an additional two counts of criminal attempt to commit murder.  About two weeks before the trial began, the state removed death.  Our client's case went to trial and he was acquitted on all counts.  The state relied on "snitch testimony."  The defense attorney successfully impeached the credibility of his testimony.  The jury did not believe him.  His motivation was to strike a deal with the prosecution so he could get out of jail.  I included the article, The Prosecution Use of Snitch Testimony can be a Fatal Error. It can be found under More Information.
