Tuesday evening marked another win for the Law Offices of Kelli J. Bynum, P.A. My client was facing two counts of Aggravated Assault, punishable by a minimum mandatory of three years in the Florida State Prison. After a thirty-five minute deliberation by the jury, the only thing he was facing was dinner with his family and a good night’s sleep in his own bed.
I find it so refreshing when the people of Jacksonville take their civic duty of jury service seriously enough to listen to the facts of the case, see the reasonable doubt, and render a verdict that is fair and just. That verdict in this case was not guilty and it was the right one.
