Attorney Gregory Carter Defends Client Who Acted in Self Defense
On Aug. 2, 2018, a disagreement between friends ended in a tragic shooting. Attorney Carter was able to get his client, charged with second-degree murder, acquitted by an Orleans Parish jury on Nov. 20, 2019. After viewing surveillance footage and hearing arguments from both the prosecution and the defense, the jury voted for acquittal. Attorney Carter praised the verdict, stating:
“He thought he was about to lose his life out there, and he did what he had to do to protect himself. He’s sorry that the family lost someone.”
Carter’s client was released from jail on Thursday, Nov. 21.
