Case Study 1

Synergy assisted an internationally recognized law firm in their work with the Legal Aid Society and the Office of the Appellate Defender in a criminal defense appeal. This appeal from the Legal Aid Society led to a three-year-long pro bono effort in which a team of lawyers won an acquittal on all charges in the jury trial of Lonnie Jones, a client who had been wrongfully convicted of murder in the second degree and sentenced to 37 years to life. Synergy Intelligence provided crucial support in locating and interviewing the eyewitness and associates. After extensive investigation, Synergy produced sufficient evidence proving that the prosecution’s sole eyewitness could not have seen the crime, leading to the acquittal of Lonnie Jones.
