Attorney Uche was hired as co-counsel on a case in which Cook County Prosecutors charged a Chicago resident with armed habitual criminal. Chicago police had accused the man of unlawful possession of a gun. The Defendant had an extensive criminal background which included prior gun charges which the jury learned about. Nonetheless, attorney Uche during an intense cross-examination lasting two hours got the police officer to admit that he had handled the gun without gloves and he had violated numerous police protocols in securing the evidence. During arguments, Attorney Uche had argued that the charges were bogus and that the gun was planted on the Defendant.
The jury returned a verdict of not guilty within an hour of retiring to deliberate. The client had faced a minimum of 30 years imprisonment with a maximum of 60 years imprisonment.
