Result: The case brought forth by federal prosecutors depended heavily on information
from inside jailhouse sources, many of whom cut deals with the prosecutors
in exchange for shorter prison sentences. Attorney Ferrentino capitalized
on these weaknesses in the prosecution's case, which ultimately led
to a mistrial. Of the 11 defendants who went to trial, only our client
was not convicted.
In the retrial Ferrentino & Associates again successfully defended
our client, as the jury acquitted or hung on all of the serious charges.
Our client now has a second chance, and was able to return home to his family.
