Crawford County Criminal Defense Attorney Adam Stone of The Stone Law Firm,
LTD has set his sights on a trial winning streak for 2018. He has already
started off on track after securing a victory in both
criminal defense cases managed by his law firm that went to court this year.
The first case –
State v. Charles Pryer, Wyandot County – began when Mr. Pryer was arrested and charged with fourth degree
felony criminal trespass. Although trespassing is a property crime generally
associated with limited penalties, this particular charge could have sentenced
Mr. Pryer to 18 months in prison if convicted. Realizing the prosecution
did not have an impressive case against his client, Adam had no qualms
to take the case to trial. After just over an hour of deliberation, the
jury announced they had found him not guilty of felony criminal trespassing
and the lesser included
misdemeanor form of criminal trespass.
The second case –
State v. Cristian Brown (juvenile bindover), Seneca County – also had considerably high-stakes. Adam’s client had been
murder and his future was immediately uncertain. The Stone Law Firm, LTD approached
the situation delicately, knowing that a single wrong word in an ongoing
murder case could spell disaster for the defendant. Throughout several
months used to try to negotiate the case, Mr. Brown always and staunchly
upheld his innocence. When the case was finally taken to trial, it only
lasted a day. Perhaps to the prosecution’s surprise but not to
Attorney Stone, the jury came back with a not guilty verdict, exonerating a man who was
staring down a harrowing set of consequences if he had been convicted.
