Our legal team of Stone Law Firm, LTD represented a client who was facing
30 years in prison, indicted with Felony 1 Aggravated Burglary, Felony
1 Aggravated Robbery, and Felony 2 Felonious Assault. Though there were
many attempts at incarcerating 40-year-old Jason L. Westerfield for far
longer than he deserved, justice prevailed--thanks to our Bucyrus criminal
defense lawyer, Adam Stone. After much deliberation, the jury came back
with an acquittal on all charges in the indictment, freeing him from the
potentially devastating 30 years ahead of our client.
Instead, the state had to resort to the lesser offense in order to convince
the jury of any possible wrongdoing on our client’s behalf. Therefore,
he was found guilty of 1 lesser included offense of burglary, sentencing
him to 7 years in prison as opposed to 30. The jury was able to see our
client’s innocence in the matter, and instead had to convict him
of a lesser crime in accordance to what was presented to them. Crawford
County Common Pleas Judge Sean Leuthold sentenced him to 1 year less than
the maximum 8 years in prison for the 2nd degree felony of burglary.
