Cleveland Police Brutality Attorney
State v. Ron Mitchell in Cuyahoga County
One such example of this, as recently reported in the media, was State v. Ron Mitchell in Cuyahoga County. Ron, our client, was literally walking down the street when officers approached him in their zone car. Ron attempted to run away – so fast that some officers testified they needed to get back in their car. In the end, Ron was shot in the back.
The police officer who did the shooting claimed that Ron had a gun and that he pointed the gun at the officer and his partner – several other officers who testified said they did not actually see a gun. Our client was seriously injured and accused of aggravated menacing for allegedly pointing a gun at the officers.
Attorney Megan Patituce, a partner at the firm, defended Mr. Mitchell at his first trial. Because of our representation, the jury rejected the police’s story and found Mr. Mitchell not guilty of aggravated menacing.
