CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY UPDATES:
JURY SAYS “NOT GUILTY” TO TRUCK DRIVER CHARGED IN BEATING DEATH OF MAN
After nine hours of deliberations, a truck driver was found not guilty of the charge of murder in the beating death of a man. The trucker was charged with murder after he was involved in an altercation with a man, ultimately beating him to death with a tire iron. William Daley successfully defended the driver, convincing the jury that the beating was in self defense. The beating took place after words were exchanged between the trucker and a man who had approached the trucker’s wife. Attorney Daley persuaded the jury with the argument that the driver had no choice but to defend himself when he was attacked by the man with a knife.
There are many different types of driving offenses, all of which hold different penalties and consequences for those guilty of committing them. However, one of the most serious, impactful, and expensive driving offences is DUI. Being found guilty of this particular driving offense can result in serious consequences and have damaging implications for the future. There are many undesirable effects of being charged with DUI, which can include:
- Increased insurance costs
- Hefty fines
- Driving disqualification
- Alcohol assessment and treatment
Being charged with DUI can therefore make life costly and difficult in many ways. If you believe that you have unfairly been accused of DUI it is important to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Once you have been found guilty or have admitted to DUI you have to bear the consequences, so it is vital to get this charge sorted out through the proper channels in order to avoid the severe penalties that are attached to DUI.

JURY AWARDS $459,130.33 TO FAMILY OF MENTAL HEALTH PATIENT FOR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
A jury awarded $459,130.33 to the family of a 12-year mental health hospital patient. In receiving this jury verdict William Daley convinced the jury that 33-year-old Willie Hill, Jr. should not have been given a grounds pass by his doctors at Madden Mental Health facility, due to Mr. Hill’s longstanding mental health problem. After receiving the pass, Mr. Hill, who had been at Madden for three years, left the hospital grounds and ingested a lethal amount of alcohol. He was found dead by the police. Before trial the hospital had offered only $20,000 to settle the case. Attorney Daley represented Hill’s family in this medical malpractice case.
