Client Cleared of Murder | Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Lawyer

courtroom-judge-chair

Colorado Springs criminal defense lawyer Sarah Christensen has successfully defended a client against murder and kidnapping charges, according to the Gazette. Ms. Christensen believes that her client, who was accused of murder, accessory to murder and kidnapping in a Colorado Springs killing in July, was over-charged. Jurors agreed that there was reason to doubt his guilt of murder and kidnapping. In a tragedy that occurred after a drug deal gone wrong, two men tried to find a drug dealer they felt had cheated them. The man who was to lead the two ended up dead. Ms. Christensen said in her closing argument that her client was “shocked” that the man with him opened fire, and went on to say that he felt terrible about the way things went that day. While she did say that he needs to be held accountable as an accessory for the part that he played, he was not guilty of kidnapping or of murder. The jury deliberated for five hours and agreed unanimously with Ms. Christensen. Her client will have to serve time because of the accessory charge, but he has been spared the life sentence that the excessive charges would have incurred.
