“Go and learn what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘Instead of offering sacrifices to Me, I want you to be merciful to others.’  I didn’t come to invite good people to be my followers.  I came to invite sinners”. ~Matthew 9:13

Houston criminal defense lawyer Jim Sullivan represents clients at trial.  While Jim Sullivan works hard to win every case, the reality is that many, if not most, accused committed the offense and some were even caught in the act.  On these cases, the definition of “winning” must also include beating the best offer from the government.  One recent jury trial illustrates this principle.  Jim Sullivan represented a man in a Harris County Criminal District Court accused of sexual assault.  The testimonial and physical evidence was overwhelming and convincing.  The man was found guilty by the jury.  However, Jim Sullivan persuaded the jury to be merciful to the accused and to recommend probation.  The man ultimately received 5 years probation instead of the 5 years in prison that the government offered him prior to trial.  If you need a Houston criminal trial lawyer, you can call Jim Sullivan & Associates right now at 281-546-6428 or contact at jimsullivan@entouch.net.
