Attorney Dan Nevins recently secured a “not guilty” verdict for a client charged with intimidating a witness. This client was offered a jail sentence of 9-23 months in exchange for a guilty plea. After consultation with Attorney Nevins, this client decided to proceed with a trial. The alleged victim, who was a witness against our client in a traffic case, testified at the bench trial that the client had threatened to physically assault him if he testified in the traffic case. Under direct examination by Attorney Nevins, our client testified that he and the alleged victim traded racial slurs, but no threats of violence. After hearing all of the evidence, the judge determined that the competing testimony left him with reasonable doubt and therefore he found the client “not guilty.” Thanks to the hard work of Attorney Nevins, this client avoided a conviction and lengthy jail sentence.
