posted 2015 | J.B. v. State
Client and her husband were arrested, charged and convicted of felony aggravated child abuse. Although the husband was able to get his conviction reversed on appeal, our client’s conviction was repeatedly affirmed and left undisturbed by the appellate court. The client recognized that she was getting pushed around by the legal system and was referred to Mr. Forman for help.
After filing a motion in circuit court, Mr. Forman brought the matter to the Fourth District Court of Appeal on a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus in order to correct a manifest injustice. After filing all of the briefs, the appellate court agreed with Mr. Forman, reversed the conviction and sentence and ordered that all of the charges be forever dismissed! Client was thrilled that her name was finally cleared!
