    Kudos to veteran defense attorney David Cripps on his successful representation of his client on 27 felony counts including 8 capital charges of Assault with Intent to Murder, in the case of People v Lester Vanquez Chambers Wayne County case no. 13-002305-01-FC. Victory began at the Preliminary Examination held on March 13, 2013 where 11 counts were dismissed, including 3 capital counts. Victory continued at trial- - A Motion for Directed Verdict was granted as to count 5, Assault with Intent to Murder. After a 5-day jury trial, on February 19, 2014, the jury returned NOT GUILTY verdicts on 5 counts of Assault with Intent to Murder, NOT GUILTY on 4 counts of Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm Less Than Murder, NOT GUILTY on 3 counts of Felonious Assault, and NOT GUILTY on one count of Malicious Destruction of Fire or Police Property . The defendant was found GUILTY BUT MENTALLY ILL on one count of (1.) Discharge of a Firearm in or at a Building, and one count of (2.) Felony Firearm. Kudos to Attorney David Cripps!
