In his opening statement, Fred alluded to these mistakes when he stated, “This is a tale of the underbelly of your town. I guarantee you that you will be embarrassed of your law enforcement.”
After negotiating on behalf of his client, Fred arranged for time served and a 7 year sentence. Although a guilty plea to a murder conviction was required, a little over 4 years had already passed. As a result, Fred’s client will be released after 3 additional years in jail and 1 day at trial.
