Greenville, SC – Alex Kornfeld’s client went to a jury trial the week of November 11, 2019. After the close of the State’s case, Kornfeld Motioned the Court for a Directed Verdict. A directed verdict can only be granted if there is a failure of competent evidence tending to prove the charge in the indictment.
The Court granted Kornfeld’s Motion For a Directed Verdict. Although a directed verdict is extremely rare, Kornfeld and his client believed that this case warranted a directed verdict. “I can not fully articulate the pressure of representing a man charged with murder any more than I can articulate the way my client and I felt when the charges were dismissed against him at trial.”
