Not Guilty Verdict in Assault Case
State of Wisconsin v AJT
A was accused of a violent battery against another person, who ended up in the hospital. Many people present at the party believed that they saw B there earlier and that he had returned with a group of people to assault the victim.
Kirk was able to establish an alibi, proving that A was with his girlfriend the entire time. He also vigorously cross-examined the many witnesses who claimed to have seen A attacking the victim. Kirk showed the jury that the excessive drinking and rowdy partying that was going on affected the credibility of the witnesses. He also forced a witness to confess that she had lied on the stand. The jury found AJT Not Guilty of all charges.
