Notable Not Guilty Verdicts

Read more about recent case results involving "not guilty" verdicts obtained by the attorneys at Brown, Bradshaw & Moffat, LLP in Salt Lake City, Utah.

State v Michael A. Dale

Third District Court - Salt Lake City (2022)

Third District Court - Salt Lake City (2022)A defendant was charged with a crime that involved unjustified use or threatened use of force. Before the trial, the legal team at Brown, Bradshaw & Moffat provided enough evidence in the hearing that it was deemed to have established a prima facie claim of justification. That means the evidence provided in favor of the defendant was so strong that it required the state to prove the charges by clear and convincing evidence. The state failed to meet that burden, and the court ruled the case dismissed with prejudice, meaning the case is permanently closed and the state cannot pursue it again. 

State v Kiersa Marin Fullmer

Fourth District Court - Utah County (2022)

The legal team at Brown, Bradshaw & Moffat provided a strong defense and filed a motion to dismiss. The court granted the motion to dismiss.
