Crosby Law In The News
Mr. Crosby appealed a case for a man who was convicted by a jury for drug trafficking and sentenced to 30 years in prison. The evidence at trial showed that the client was present in a house during the execution of a search warrant by law enforcement along with 3 other individuals, multiple firearms and large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine. All of the drugs, however, were hidden from plain view and the defendant claimed he did not reside in the house. In the appeal, Mr. Crosby successfully argued that there was no direct evidence linking the client to the drugs other than spatial proximity. The Georgia Court of Appeals agreed and REVERSED the client’s conviction which freed him from prison.
Mr. Crosby recently represented a man wrongfully charged with the heinous murder of two small children. His client denied any wrong-doing from the beginning.

Thankfully, evidence was uncovered quickly that not only led to the dismissal of the murder charges and cleared his client’s name but led to the arrest of the real perpetrator. This case was covered extensively by the media here in Georgia and nationwide.
