Jury Trial in Criminal Case Results in Favorable Outcome

Its been quite some time since I last posted something on this blog. I had a three-day jury trial in Glenwood Springs in late July. The trial resulted in a hung jury because of an unexpected ruling denying the affirmative defense of entrapment. Nevertheless, the jury was stuck at 9-3 for my client before informing the judge that they could not come to a unanimous decision. Based on favorable juror feedback, the matter was resolved through a plea bargain that will likely result in dismissal in a year. The newsworthy case was the subject of a three-part series in the Aspen Daily News.
