News: Karra Porter represents parolee shot three times by parole agent charged with aggravated assault
Karra Porter discussed the shooting of her client Joe Alvin Gomez at a press conference at the offices of Christensen & Jensen today.  The Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office announced today that it had filed a criminal charge against AP&P Agent Andrew O'Gwin, who shot Gomez three times in May 2017 while stopped at a Murray traffic light.  Reporters heard witness accounts that contradicted an earlier news release by Corrections stating that Gomez had "initiated an aggressive confrontation."  Karra also advocated for changes in how shootings like this are investigated by Officer Involved Critical Incident groups.  C&J's Mary Corporon has also taken on the defense and appeal of Joe's charge of disorderly conduct stemming from the incident.
