// Jan 12, 2017
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. Read the entire appellate brief here.
