Client was charged with Aid and Abet Robbery because he supposedly matched the description of a group of malcontents loitering by the light rail station. However, the only description that matched Client was that he happened to be wearing a green shirt.

The judge announced her verdict the moment the State's attorney finished their closing argument. NOT GUILTY.

Sellers combined the recordings from all five 911 calls and presented the judge with a seamless timeline of the events. After reviewing the evidence, the judge concluded that the 911 caller was frustrated by the slow response time by police and began embellishing details to encourage the dispatcher to assign the call a higher priority.

The judge decided the 911 callers were not credible and found Client NOT GUILTY of Terroristic Threats. Another big win for Minnesota Legal Defense.
