Nov 2014- Bronx jury full acquittal Murder in the Second Degree, Manslaughter in the 1st Degree, Manslaughter in the 2d Degree, Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, Assault in the First Degree, Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree (loaded firearm)
Brian M, a resident of Brooklyn was fully acquitted by a jury in Bronx County of all charges to include Murder in the Second Degree, Manslaughter in the 1st Degree, Manslaughter in the 2d Degree, Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, and Assault in the First Degree. Brian M was arrested in 2006 and charged in the Bronx with Murder in the Second Degree and other related charges. Brian M was incarcerated for six years on Rikers Island and had to endure two hung jury trials before Brian M made one of the wisest decisions of his life-retaining the services of Bronx Murder lawyer to defend Brian M at his third and final trial.
Bronx Murder lawyer Troy A. Smith masterfully attacked the highly suggestive lineup procedures used by the NYPD and obliterated the highly intoxicated eyewitnesses to the crime during a withering cross examination. Further, Attorney Smith presented expert testimony in the area of eyewitness identification testimony in the areas of cross-racial identification, and weapon focus effect on memory (blog page to follow on this to link).
After two hung juries with another defense lawyer in which the jury was hopelessly deadlocked for nearly two weeks, it took less than one hour of deliberations for the Acquittal King, Troy A. Smith to convince the Bronx jury of Brian M’s innocence.
