Not Guilty, Hung Jury Verdict Following Five Day Trial

Not Guilty, Hung Jury Verdict Following Five Day Trial

Our firm is pleased to announce a not guilty verdict on the counts of Robbery, Theft, Simple Assault, and Conspiracy – Simple Assault in the matter of Commonwealth v. R.M.  The outcome is heralded as a victory for the Defendant who will return to trial on lesser offenses following the hearing.  Copoulos is especially proud of the verdict rendered following more than two full days of jury deliberation, as the offer on the case before trial was more than five years in state custody for the Defendant.  Following litigation of the trial the government offered the Defendant a house arrest sentence.

Mark Copoulos successfully defended felony robbery charges following a five day jury trial at the Criminal Justice Center.

The five day jury trial included testimony from multiple police officers and personnel and the complaining witness who failed to identify R.M. at the scene.  While the government attempted to link R.M. to the crime based on cell phone data, the jury was not convinced that the government’s “power point” testimony was sufficient to meet the legal threshold for conviction.  In his closing statement Copoulos argued that the government failed to meet their burden.  The jury agreed on most of the charges and the defendant continues to enjoy his presumption of innocence.
