Rare Not Guilty Verdict!
On October 3, 2013, Londrigan, Potter, & Randle P.C. client Rashaud Brown walked out of Federal Court a free man after a jury found him not guilty of possessing drugs with the intent to distribute them. Doug Quivey represented Mr. Brown. According to an Illinois Times article about the case, the not-guilty verdict was the first one in Federal Court in Springfield in over ten years. According to the article, between the years 2007 and 2012, only three federal criminal cases out of 2,137 in Springfield, Peoria, Urbana, and Rock Island resulted in not quilty verdicts. Mr. Brown and his family were very appreciative of Mr. Quivey's efforts.
