Attorney Gregory Q. Carter represented Julius Ford, who had been accused of accepting bribes while serving on a jury. Ford claimed that while he was serving as a jury, the defendant’s brother approached him and persuaded him to influence other members of the jury to either deadlock or decide on a not guilty vote in exchange for payment. Ford had previously been acquainted with the defendant’s family and stated that he feared for his life if he had not done what was asked, claiming that he believed they knew where he lived. The perjury and public bribery charges against Ford came after the defendant implicated Ford as a part a part of a plea deal.
Attorney Carter argued that the prosecutors do not have any evidence that money was taken or that his client was working for the defendant’s family. He further claimed that when the defendant failed to be convicted by the jury, prosecutors decided to target his client instead.
