  1. Not guilty 2nd degree Murder and Not guilty Manslaughter – Jury Trial. Defendant was accused of stabbing a man to death. After receiving a severe beating defendant suffered amnesia and could not remember significant parts of the encounter. Self-defense and mere presence were both argued. Maricopa County Superior Court.
  2. Dismissed - 2nd degree Murder - defense investigation revealed that the witnesses had mistakenly identified the wrong man. Maricopa County Superior Court.
  3. Guilty Except Insane – defendant pled guilty except insane and placed under the supervision of the Arizona State Hospital. Defendant originally charged with Attempted Murder, a class 2 dangerous felony and Aggravated Assault, a class 4 felony. Defense investigation and experts confirmed that the defendant was insane at the time of the offense and did not appreciate the wrongfulness of his conduct. The guilty except insane resolution allows the defendant to receive psychiatric treatment rather than simply be warehoused in prison. (Note: Arizona eliminated the verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity verdict in favor of the guilty except insane verdict a number of years ago.) Maricopa County Superior Court.
