According to the La Crosse Tribune, quoting the La Crosse County Clerk of Court. "2,832 people were summoned to serve on 36 jury trials last year in La Crosse County". The Koula trial (double homicide), La Crosse's 'Trial of the Century', occupied 18 days, making it the longest trial in La Crosse County history. I was a member of the defense team, along with attorneys Jim Koby and Keith Belzer. I had another trial prior to Koula which resulted in Not Guilty on all charges. I have had several trials since Koula, including a three-day trial wherein my client faced 75 years prison and was found Not Guilty of all charges except a Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct, which I told the jurors he was guilty of. There was also an OWI 4th Felony that was dismissed outright after a mistrial, an OWI 3rd that was amended to a mere Reckless Driving half-way through the trial, and a Not Guilty verdict on a .22 BAC charge. These are just the ones that went to trial.
Indeed, we at Dyer Law Firm, LLC have much to thank La Crosse County jurors for. The time we spent in trial will only translate into better results for our current clients, and those to come. Before you hire another attorney for your case, ask him/her when the last time they won a jury trial was.
