Top Chicago criminal defense lawyer Michael Leonard appears on Apple podcast “One Minute Remaining” regarding Damian Skinner case. Michael Leonard and “One Minute Remaining” host Jack Laurence analyze the California trial and murder conviction of Mr. Skinner. This is episode number 101 in Jack Laurence’s popular true crime podcast and can be downloaded on Apple podcasts, Amazon podcasts, and Acast.
The Skinner case is controversial in light of the fact that Mr. Skinner was convicted of murder, along with a co-defendant, even though there was no connection between them; there was no connection between Mr. Skinner and the car allegedly used to commit the crime: there was no connection between Mr. Skinner and the victim; there was no forensic evidence connecting Mr. Skinner to the crime; there was no eyewitness testimony supporting Mr. Skinner’s commission of the crime; one of the eyewitness-victims testified at trial testified that Mr. Skinner was not present during the commission of the crime; and Mr. Skinner had numerous witnesses who provided a solid alibi for his whereabouts at the time of the crime. On top of all that, the prosecution was granted leave to change the venue of the case to a more favorable jurisdiction. Michael Leonard and Jack Laurence dive into these issues. They also discuss Mike’s recent win at trial on behalf of his client where he obtained a compete not guilty jury verdict.
