Brother can you spare a C note and a “Not Guilty” vote?

Goliath love the courthouse. Today the ‘low profile’ Robbery case of State v. John Ingram finished it’s jury trial.  The jury found  the defendant ‘Not guilty of Robbery’ but guilty of “Theft”.

The prosecutor (New Chief Deputy Tim Gray) may have had a warning things weren’t going so well for the State earlier this morning though.  According to reports, one of the jurors brought a hundred dollar bill and gave it to the bailiff and asked that the bailiff give the money to the defendant. It turns out the juror felt sorry for the defendant and felt he was ‘in a desperate situation’.

This stuff REALLY HAPPENS at the Courthouse peoples.

Congratulations to Attorney Mitch Harlan for the win.

    This story perfectly explains the courthouse. As a former prosecutor I can see the story behind that story. Had the prosecutor amended the charge from robbery to theft and it was reported, look out! The lazy prosecutor gave a “slap on the wrist” to a violent criminal. He takes him to trial, and things like this happen. Everybody has to have a pretty thick skin to do this shit.

    Silence for a month? Did a judge issue a gag order?

Tell 'em how you really feel
