Update: Emotions run high in, out of court as Carson, 2 others found not guilty

Millions of tax payer dollars spent on a case fabricated by the Stanislaus County DA’s office.
After months of incarceration, years of court testimony, and enormous amount of wasted resources, 12 jurors acquitted all defendants.
June 28, 2019 The prominent criminal defense attorney said he wished he’d had the opportunity to thank the jurors, who left before everyone else was excused from the courtroom. Deputies escorted the jurors out; they didn’t address anyone outside the courtroom.

The jury of 10 women and two men began deliberations Wednesday afternoon and reached a verdict Friday afternoon.

A large crowd of spectators and attorneys assembled at the courthouse for the reading of the verdict, set for 3:30 p.m. Court deputies opened up a second courtroom for the overflow crowd.

“Thank you all,” Carson said. “And thank God that juries are smarter than judges.”
