Verifiable Case Result

Outright acquittal on carjacking charge

State v. A.D.W.; 2000-CF-1947

Arresting Agency: Fort Pierce Police Department

Case Summary: “Our client was pulled over in a vehicle that had recently been the subject of a carjacking on the north side of Fort Pierce. He was the passenger. The offer was ten years prison. Our client said he got picked up by a couple of friends just before the vehicle had been pulled over by the police. He told the police on videotape that he didn’t know anything about any carjacking. After a blistering cross-examination of the alleged victim, the defense rested without putting on any evidence.”

Result: “Acquitted by jury.”
