Aggravated Robbery: Acquitted
Staci Biggar represented a defendant charged with an aggravated robbery that occurred in the apartment complex where he resided with his mother. The apartment manager suggested to police the identity of the suspect. The police then obtained an identification of the suspect from the victim utilizing a photo spread.
Our Investigation Creates Doubt
Our criminal investigation determined that the apartment manager had shown the victim the driver’s license photograph of the defendant prior to the victim reviewing the photo spread.
Subpoenaed records from the property manager’s file also determined that this specific manager had a number of problems regarding rent payments with the suspect’s mother.
The jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty.
