Capital Murder Case Dismissed

On April 20, 2018, Arturo Jimenez walked out of jail a free man.  His capital murder case was dismissed by Judge Georgini.  In 2013,  he was arrested for the murder of Mr. Castro, a 92 year old man in Eloy. The crime occurred in September, 2009.  I was appointed by the court as the defense investigator.  He was arrested for a crime he did not do.  I was pleased to help him find justice.  A poor investigation by the police resulted in his arrest.  He called himself "dead man walking."  From day one he said he was innocent.  I was pleased to help find the truth in this case.  We had great teamwork with Attorney Bob Storrs, Attorney Robyn Varcoe and mitigation specialist, Alan Ellis.  Arturo Jimenez is not "dead man walking" anymore.  See the link to the news article.
