First Not Guilty Verdict in 2012 returned in less than 19 minutes by an Orleans Parish jury.
Published: Jan 09, 2012
Attorney Martin E. Regan, Jr. secured a resounding victory for his client with the first acquittal of 2012 at Orleans Parish Criminal Court in New Orleans, Louisiana in the case of State v Wendell Brown.
Mr. Brown had been languishing in jail for two years awaiting the opportunity to rejoin his family. Mr. Brown had been accused of two counts of arm robbery with a sawed off shot gun at a bar located at the corner of Hickory St. and Leonidas St. in New Orleans.
The verdict of not guilty was returned quickly and decisively in less than 19 minutes by a jury that was not convinced by the state’s arguments against Mr. Brown. Mr. Regan, a seasoned criminal trial attorney with over 36 years of experience, was able to break down the state’s case when he cross examined the witnesses against Mr. Brown and clearly exposed the case for what it was.
The District Attorney’s office had charged the wrong man and imprisoned him for two long years in an Orleans Parish jail for a crime he had not committed.← Back to the Success Stories Index
