Victory: Mark Snodgrass & Fred Stangl

Congratulations to Mark Snodgrass and Fred Stangl. Â They got a mistrial/busted jury this afternoon on a murder case out of Kent County. Â They began with 85 jurors, and disqualified all but 28, leaving too few to select a jury. Â The DA agreed to a change of venue. Â Good job, gladiators!

Victory: Chuck Lanehart

Across the hall in CCL#2, Chuck Lanehart’s client walked on two MPAG’s alleging he violated his theft probations by burglarizing a home. Judge Farmer found the State had not proved the allegation: the client had a good alibi for the time of the burglary, and a defense witness supported his explanation that he pawned items…

Victory: Danny Hurley

In 140th District Court, Danny Hurley’s client walked out of the courthouse after a three-day trial, beating a second-degree felony accusation of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit aggravated assault. After about three hours of deliberations, the jury found Danny’s client guilty of the lesser-included offense of misdemeanor criminal trespass, and he was…

Victory: Danny Hurley

Congratulations to Danny for getting the two-word verdict in a sexual assault case in Midland County. The citizen accused was the former Midland Lee girls basketball coach and the complainant a former player. Apparently, the “avuncular” Mr. Hurley and co-counsel Brian Carney of Midland were able to convince the jury that the complainants history of…

Victory: Chip Parker

Congratulations to Chip Parker! He got a mistrial/hung jury in 140th June 14, 2007. His innocent client was accused of burning a 15-month-old with boiling water. Chip’s voir dire was top notch. Thanks goes out to David Guinn for his assistance and to LCDLA members Hurley/Guinn/Clements for their work in the Long case. Judge Darnell…

Victory: David Guinn

Congratulations to David Guinn on a big win May 31! Albeit a civil matter, David’s case involves defending the Bill of Rights, of course (1st Amendment). In Charles Ault v. Lubbock County, David got Judge Cummings to grant a preliminary injunction so the Boom Boom Cabaret can continue its sexually oriented business while Lubbock County…

Victory: Pat Metze

Congratulations to Pat Metze! He won an acquittal today for his client in a Hockley County District Court evading with a motor vehicle. Â Pat won a $50 bet from Philip Wischkaemper by working the following lyrics into his final argument: Â “He’s just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm.” Â (!) Â…

Victory: David Guinn & Danny Hurley

Congratulations to David Guinn. He won a victory in CCL#2 Tuesday on a DWI “B”. It was a “goofy, goofy Tech kid”, per David, who was stopped for running a red light. No breath test. The jury was out 15 minutes. Also this week, in a Garza County murder trial, Danny Hurley was granted a…

Victory: Donnie Yandell

In Yoakum County District Court today, Donnie Yandell kept a jury out 11 hours before they hung up six-six. Â It was a first degree felony: Â aggravated sexual assault/child.

Victory: Mark Snodgrass

Congratulations to Mark Snodgrass. The big guy had a big victory in 137th District Court yesterday. It was a burglary of a habitation with intent to commit sexual assault (first degree felony).
