Mom found Not Guilty in officer assault case
Ryan fought for a single mother confronted with a challenging aggravated assault case that included a police officer victim and video evidence. Ryan first convinced the judge to have his client released on bond so she could continue caring for her four young children. Then Ryan took the case to trial despite the video, which the State argued was proof the Mom tried to run the officer over with her car. The jury sided with Ryan. The woman was found Not Guilty on all charges! Instead of going to prison, the Mom left the courtroom a free woman and returned to her family.
