As some of you probably already heard – the jury returned their verdict on Monday.
It was a bittersweet verdict. Chris was acquitted of Vinny Garguilo’s murder, but was convicted on conspiracy.
There is of course no way of explaining what the jury was thinking or how they came to such a conclusion. Obviously if he were free and clear of the murder – you would think they would have also returned a not guilty verdict on Conspiracy. It just makes no sense.
The jury listened to the governments witness, Pablo Amador who depicted himself as the “look out” for Justin Bressman. It is clear that Amador, an admitted crackhead was actually the SHOOTER – based on testimony from an eye witness.
To avoid a life sentence and possibly the death penalty, we believe that the government encouraged Amador to stick to his story in a effort to tighten up their case.
And lucky for them, it worked. The only problem is that they have convicted the wrong man and once Amador’s time is up – he, a murderer will return to the streets.
At this time Chris’ attorneys are preparing for an appeal – that will hopefully overturn these convictions and get our boy home.
Thank you for the outpouring of support. Chris himself and his family are very grateful.
