Court Orders New Trial


COURT Orders New Trial


Posted: 3/11/2013

Judge Day ruled that Mr. Shimmin, represented by Dennis Balske, was entitled to a new trial because he had not been provided with relevant impeachment information by prosecution officials, in violation of Brady v. Maryland.  The information would have undercut the arresting officer's contested claim that Mr. Shimmin had confessed to him, a claim that Mr. Shimmin vehemently denied.
