    • Burglary 1st Degree - Theft Crimes Not Guilty

      Court: Oconee General Sessions Court; Walhalla, SC

      Original Charge: Burglary 1st Degree

      Original Penalty: 15 year mandatory minimum without parole to LIFE

      Result: Not Guilty

      The state made an offer of 8 years. Client was 16 at the time of the arrest. State tried as an adult. If convicted, client would have received a mandatory minimum, no parole sentence of 15 years to LIFE. Clients fingerprint was found on a jewelry box in the home. However, client had spent the night in the home multiple times prior to the burglary. Homeowner testified that no kids were ever allowed in her room. She said my client had only been to the house once in the past year and a half. She then for the first time ever testified that she wiped the jewelry box a week before the burglary. When I accused her of making this up recently, she said she told the officer.

      When the officer took the stand, I asked him if she told him that she wiped the box. He said that he would have put that in his report. I also brought up that he was wearing a body camera for 2 hours in the house. He testified that he reviewed the footage and still never remembered her saying she wiped the box. Officer also failed to dust for prints on the door knob and railings. He testified under cross that prints would last indefinitely if climate controlled and not disturbed.

      The homeowner's son testified a day after his mother. Said that my client knew the back door could be opened with credit card. Also that my client knew there were guns in master bedroom. I asked “how did the defendant know there were guns in there?” He admitted that kids were often in that master bedroom when his parents weren’t home. They used the bathroom when several kids stayed over etc. Said my client was there between 5-20 times that summer.

      The only issue was whether she recently wiped the box. In closing, I argued that the pics of the bedroom showed a dirty room. Dirty nightstand. Do you wash dishes and set them on a dirty table? I argued that the homeowner did not wipe the box a week before the burglary and that my clients print was placed there when he spent the night.

      Jury found client not guilty

Steve Hisker's investigation showed that the defendants were acting in defense of a woman who had been stalked by the "victim". Victim had appeared at defendants residence to speak with the female. Defendants and female asked victim to leave. Victim appeared to leave but actually went and waited down the street. When the female left the defendants residence, victim chased her vehicle and forced her off the road. Defendants heard victims truck and went to the female's aid. Steve Hisker's investigation uncovered records of victim being placed on trespass notice and removed from the female's college campus. This investigation was turned over to prosecutors who promptly dismissed the charges against both defendants.
