NOT GUILTY VERDICT BY JURY (James Sullivan represented a 25 year old man accused of 2 separate armed robberies, including a home invasion across the street from the South Houston Police Department. The chief of police and another police officer testified in trial that they positively identified Sullivan’s client as one of the three armed robbers who fled on foot from the scene. The police initially suspected Sullivan’s client because his vehicle was left behind at the scene. After the jury returned a not guilty verdict in Case # 781193, the prosecutor dismissed a second prior aggravated robbery charge in Case # 780649. If convicted of either robbery case, the accused faced 25 years to life in prison. Sullivan then represented his client at a parole revocation hearing and his client was kept on parole)
