Marcus Cooper was a court-appointed client charged with Aggravated Assault-Deadly Weapon. Despite significant negative media coverage, he was acquitted by a jury. Joe Hoelscher’s cross-examination of the interrogating detective is now the subject of a Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (“MCLE”) course taught to lawyers. After winning the first case, Mr. Hoelscher was removed and a new lawyer appointed for Cooper’s remaining cases. Joe continues to consult pro bono.
