Chuck Lanehart won a huge victory for his client in the 11th Court of Appeals last week. The Eastland Court issued an opinion REVERSING AND RENDERING A JUDGMENT OF ACQUITTAL in a Nolan County case. Chuck’s client, Christopher Lamont Taylor, was convicted of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. The jury popped him with an 80-year sentence, and a $5000 fine. The published opinion turned on the fact that the prosecution failed to corroborate their snitch’s testimony as required by Article 38.141 C.C.P. (the “Tulia Law”). You can read the opinion here.
Great job Chuck!!
