Jason McCombs trial

His attorney was Austin Shell who claimed that he was not on the phone for at least 37 minutes before the accident. Similarly, he stated that the investigation could not come up with another possible explanation as to why McCombs’ car was in the oncoming lane.
His attorney also proved that the road was uneven and dangerous by showing a video that he personally took by visiting the site. Greaves family said,
“In our opinion the state proved its case beyond any doubt. The facts as they were presented supported the requirements of the law as explained by the judge. The defense presented a very compelling and emotional testimony by Mr. McCombs that may have swung the jurors away from a fact-based decision.”
Jason won the case and was proved innocent. His attorney was happy that Jason won the case. Austin said,
“It was a great relief to us, but the whole thing is so sad and tragic for the Greaves family.”
