    Client Charged With Attempted Murder Acquitted in 2 Hours—August 12, 2015 Jury Verdict

    Posted on: August 20th, 2015 by rutanlaw No Comments

    The Rutan Law Firm is a Columbus criminal defense firm that represents clients all over Ohio who are charged with serious criminal offenses. Rutan Law is mindful of the fact that every time we enter a courtroom on behalf of our clients, there is a great deal at stake. All lawyers must have the ability to negotiate, know the law and the ability to try cases.

    Last week on August 12, 2015, after all, negotiations failed, the Rutan Law firm buckled down for a trial and used the most important tool lawyers can and should have. The ability to try a case and succeed at trial. The client’s most serious charges were attempted murder, having weapons under disability and firing into a habitation. After 2 hours of deliberation, the Jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty on all counts. Not because she was innocent but because the State could not meet its burden. The jury asked me why I didn’t put on any evidence. I told them because “the State has to prove she was there before I prove she wasn’t”.

    She did not have to take the stand despite her desire to tell her side of the story. When you hire Rutan Law, you hire me to try and get you out of trouble, not to use the trial as your soapbox to complain. You get even by getting acquitted, not by speaking your piece at a trial where too much is on the line. If she would have been found guilty, she would have been looking at a minimum of 9 years, up to 31 years.
