Texas Attorney Charles W. Medlin represented an individual who was charged with a shooting death as a result of an altercation in the parking lot of a club in southwest Houston, TX. The State of Texas had numerous witnesses to the shooting, including the decedent’s brother. One of the Bouncers was accidentally shot in the leg by the defendant during the altercation.
Gradoni Detectives Interview Witnesses
Our interview of the witnesses could not place a weapon in the hands of the deceased but we were able to establish that the deceased brother fled the scene prior to the Police arriving. Charlie was able to establish reasonable doubt in the minds of the jury during his excellent cross-examination of the witnesses that the Defendant may have been acting in self defense since the victim may have had a weapon. The Not Guilty verdict was a great result.
RESULT BASED ON INVESTIGATION: Acquittal of Murder Charges
