Jill Brisbois and Eric Newmark will argue for the dismissal of the First Degree Murder Indictment or other appropriate sanctions on Friday, June 5, 2015. Newmark Storms Law Office is pursuing these aggressive remedies after the prosecutors prevented Brisbois from interviewing and investigating the conclusions of a crucial witness in the case against their client. It is Brisbois and Newmark’s contention that the prosecutor’s interference has violated their client’s right to confront his accuser and present a zealous defense, and the only appropriate remedy is dismissal or sanctions in the interest of justice.
