|The case of the problematic pipeMr. Shanklin was on his way home from a White Sox game in late July, when he was confronted by an angry man who claimed Mr. Shanklin had insulted his girlfriend.Later, the man told the police that Mr. Shanklin attacked him without provocation and sought to have Mr. Shanklin prosecuted on charges of Aggravated Battery.
Attorney Robert Callahan began an in-depth investigation, reviewing the police reports and interviewing witnesses. During his investigation, Callahan discovered a missing police report, one that had not been turned over to the defense.
The impact of a missing report can be enormous. In this case, the missing report explained the alleged victim had been armed with a metal pipe at the time of the altercation.
Callahan used the missing report during cross-examination of the State’s witnesses at trial. The complainant’s first witness admitted the he had been armed with a pipe. Before this, she had maintained the alleged victim had nothing in hands.
RESULT: Largely due to this and other major inconsistencies uncovered by Callahan, Mr. Shanklin was found NOT GUILTY.
