McClees Law Firm Secures No Bill For Capital Murder Defendant

Posted by Ed McClees | Jul 30, 2020

Ed McClees recently helped free his client who was charged with Capital Murder. His client is a 25 year old father who had been accused of murdering two individuals. The young man's family retained Ed in the hopes that he could work a deal that would spare their loved one from spending the rest of his life in prison.

Ed immediately got to work, and through his investigation he quickly discovered crucial evidence showing that his client acted in self-defense.  Fortunately, he discovered this evidence before the case was presented to a grand jury for indictment. Even though defense lawyers are not allowed to directly partake in grand jury proceedings, and are not even allowed in the room where the grand jury is sitting, they are permitted to prepare and submit a letter for a grand jury to consider before deciding whether or not to indict the case.

In this case, Ed meticulously prepared a letter that highlighted the evidence favorable to his client, and he described in detail the law as it relates to self defense in Texas. Through his efforts, the Grand Jury issued a No Bill, which essentially ended the case and freed Ed's client.

While it is important to note each case is different, and a positive result in one case does not guarantee positive results in future cases, this illustrates the importance of hiring the right lawyer at the right time. If you find yourself in trouble with the law, give us a call. We work tirelessly to help people regain their freedom.
