The remaining sexual assault counts were submitted to the jury. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty on all counts.

    into court. He used the test results of his client to convince the jury that his client had not committed the horrible acts of abuse claimed by his step daughter.


  • U.S. v. S.M. United States District Court, Western District of Louisiana

    Our client was charged with illegally intercepting satellite signals. The government claimed that our client was using software to re-program DirecTV program cards to illegally intercept DirecTV's satellite signal and obtain DirecTV programming without paying for it. The FBI raided his office and located the equipment and software used to re-program cards in his desk. During our investigation, we learned that his business partner was seen prior to the search walking around the office with the re-programming equipment. Kevin argued to the jury that the clients business partner planted the illegal devices so she could steal the business. The jury found our client not guilty on all counts.


  • U.S. v. S.W. United States District Court, Western District of Louisiana

    Our client was indicted for bankruptcy fraud in connection with the filing of numerous personal and business bankruptcies. The FBI conducted a search and seizure of a safe deposit box and located a large amount of cash. The cash was not listed as an asset in the pleadings filed with the bankruptcy court. During our investigation, we uncovered bank records which allowed us to argue that at the time of the filing of the bankruptcies, our client
    had forgotten about the money in the safe deposit boxes. Seven members of the twelve person jury voted not guilty which caused a mistrial. The case was successfully concluded when the government offered for our client to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge.
