Juvenile jury trial pays off
Carl Maughan won an acquittal in the first Sedgwick County jury trial in a juvenile case since the KSC's decision in In re L.M. (holding that juveniles have state constitutional right to a jury trial). According to this Wichita Eagle article, it took the jury only 40 minutes to acquit the defendant of burglary and theft.
