Not guilty X 2
Congrats to Steve Cott, who won two big not guilty verdicts in as many weeks. First, he won an an acquittal after twelve minutes of jury deliberations, in State v. Solis, ending a Ford County agg criminal sodomy prosecution. Here is coverage in the Dodge City Globe (the paper says 15-20 minutes deliberations, but I heard 12). Then last week, he won an acquittal in State v. Sotello, ending a Ford County agg indecent liberties (Jessica's Law) prosecution. Wow.
