Criminal Conviction Reversal

Claiborne County Circuit Court

This past Monday I was required to be in Port Gibson, MS at the Claiborne County Circuit Court for a case we appealed on behalf of one of our clients. Usually, when a judge asks us to come back to court for something, there could potentially be a problem with the case.

In this case there was a problem, but the problem was in the judge’s sentencing, and not because of anything my client had done.

The Mississippi Supreme Court decided in Donovan Foreman v. State of Mississippi, that three convictions for aggravated assault were to be vacated, and the case was reversed and remanded for sentencing.

This case was very unique for me in that I was the first attorney Donovan’s family called after he was arrested, and I stayed with the case through bond hearing, trial, and then finally his appeal.

Our firm does as much as we can for every client. If you need help with any criminal charge, let me know so that Coxwell & Associates can begin working for you.
