Topeka acquittal

Jennifer Roth just called and reported that she won an acquittal in State v. Lee, a Shawnee County forgery (by endorsement) prosecution. Although the jury apparently believed that Ms. Lee falsely endorsed the check, it found that the state failed to prove the check was endorsed in Shawnee County! Because the state failed to prove one of the elements--acquittal!
