Client found Not Guilty of 9 counts of Robbery and 1 count Weapon Under Disability

Last week, Attorney Stacie Sydow told a Franklin County jury that her client was innocent of every single charge against him, which included multiple counts of Aggravated Robbery. Her client was identified by three witnesses as being the man who robbed them at gunpoint near the OSU campus area. The prosecution’s case rested on those three identifications. Evidence was presented to show that the three victims found the client’s picture on their iCloud account and assumed it was him who committed the robbery. Stacie cross-examined the lead detective who admitted that another suspect was arrested around the same time for doing similar robberies in that area with the same gun. A photo array with that suspect was never shown to the victims. A forensic psychologist was called by the defense to testify regarding factors that can contribute to eyewitness misidentification. After three days of testimony, Attorney Stacie Sydow and Attorney Shannon Leis stood by the client as 9 not guilty verdicts were read. He was also found not guilty by the Judge for the Weapon Under Disability charge.
