Guilty Plea Vacated

This month, Brett T. Donaldson, Senior Member of The Cavanagh Law Firm, successfully argued and convinced the trial court that his client’s guilty plea should be vacated based on newly discovered evidence that proved that the crimes the client was arrested for and pleaded guilty to were not committed by him, but instead, were a part of a conspiracy orchestrated by his then wife to frame him for crimes he did not commit. Petitions for Post Conviction Relief on these grounds are rarely successful, but Mr. Donaldson’s experience as both a police officer and prosecutor provided the foundation to investigate and present evidence of his client’s innocence. Mr. Donaldson is currently prosecuting civil claims against the conspirators.
