Acquittal in Sedgwick County
Chrystal Krier and Monique Centeno won in State v. Collins, getting acquittals on two counts of agg assault on a LEO. Apparently, the facts of the case involved Mr. Collins attacking a great dane with a knife (who had viciously attacked him first). Mr. Collins was still yelling and blood covered when police arrived and tazed him repeatedly. The defense brought in a (live) great dane to show the jury how big they are (apparently to the chagrin of the prosecutor and judge). Anyway, the jury didn't take long to acquit.
