The Law Offices of Kyle J. Humphrey is pleased to announce that
Attorney Jared Thompson has secured yet another courtroom victory on behalf of one of our clients.
In the case of one client accused of serious drug sale and transportation
offenses, Attorney Thompson's compelling cross-examination work yielded
a complete acquittal of all charges.
Our client faced three drug charges total, two of which were felonies:
drug sale and drug transportation of 70 grams of methamphetamine. Undercover
police officers claimed that the client had conducted hand-to-hand drug
sales. Additionally, a female friend, who was in the passenger seat at
the time of the arrest, testified that all the drugs belonged to the client.
Under several rounds of cross-examination conducted by defense counsel
Jared Thompson, the facts of the case suddenly did not seem as concrete
as the state initially made them out to be. When the police officers were
on the stand and answering Attorney Thompson's questions, it became
clear to the courtroom that their account of the accused's alleged
activity was not as reliable of consistent as the prosecution had first
The friend who had accused our client also faltered under cross-examination
from Attorney Thompson. Her testimony proved that she had previously lied
about the incident and her troubled past also became relevant to her overall
reliability in this case.
In the end, the jury agreed with Attorney Thompson's assertion that
the state's key witnesses had been compromised and could produce a
reliable account of the incident in question. Unable to convict our client
beyond a reasonable doubt, they handed back a just verdict of not guilty
on all charges.
This courtroom victory is just another example of the aggressive and exacting
defense our firm can provide for our accused clients. Congratulations
to Attorney Jared Thompson for this legal victory—we are sure that
many more are ahead of them, both in and outside the courtroom.
