Charged with Murder–Not Guilty!

In another one of our cases, a client who was charged with First Degree Murder arising from an incident in front of a convenience store in the City of Flint. The alleged victim in the case was threatening our client, who in turn, called his brother for help. When his brother arrived he started shooting at the victim who died from the gunshot wounds. Pursuant to an aiding and abetting theory, our client was charged with murder along with his brother. We tried the case before a jury who found our client not guilty of murder.
