News: Karra Porter, Mary Corporon, and Kristen Kiburtz File Hard Hitting Tenth Circuit Appellate Brief in Jeremy Johnson Case
White collar criminal and appellate attorneys Karra J. Porter, Mary C. Corporon, and Kristen C. Kiburtz yesterday filed a hard hitting appellate brief in the Jeremy Johnson case with the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, Colorado. The appellate brief raises a number of serious issues involving the Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, including Mr. Johnson's lack of access to funds for his defense and a conflict of interest between Mr. Johnson and his former counsel. The brief also addresses a number of other issues that Mr. Johnson's attorneys say denied Mr. Johnson a fair trial, as well as errors committed by the district court in sentencing that sent Mr. Johnson to federal prison for more than a decade.
