Closing Statements In Crawford Trial
Last week, a jury found 33-year-old Richard Crawford guilty of first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse during the 2006 beating in which his son Coreyon Graham died.
The attorneys for both sides presented closing arguments, and the jury presented their recommendation--life in prison.
"This was a no win situation for everybody," said James Tarquin, defense attorney. "I'm obviously pleased with the recommendation that the jury gave."
"I can't be disappointed with what the jury did because they clearly took the time to consider all the evidence and the arguments within the law, and they rendered their advisory sentence," said Robin Arnold, assistant state attorney.
Senior Judge William Swigert must give the jury's recommendation great weight before he imposes his sentence on July 18th.
