Attorney Jacob Blizzard represented Client in a four-day jury trial where the Client was charged with 3rd degree injury to a child causing bodily injury.
The client was accused of slapping her step-child causing his eardrum to be ruptured and a bruise on his face.
The client was alone with the child in the period of time leading up to the discovery of the injury and was accused directly by the teenage child of causing the injury.
Thorough investigation and preparation prevailed. Jacob in advance of trial gathered records, interviewed witnesses, and obtained the evidence he needed to show the jury through cross-examination that the victim and his mother had an ax to grind against the Client and that they had given many inconsistent statements about the allegation.
RESULT: Jury returned a Not Guilty verdict.
