Possibly because murder or any other homicide charge is the most serious criminal charge in our justice system, the cards are unevenly stacked against the accused throughout the process. Judges reflexively accede to the prosecutor’s request that the accused be held without bail, regardless of the strength or weakness of the case against that individual; prosecutors withhold or delay in turning over discovery knowing that the case will just be adjourned again and again until the requested information becomes worthless to the defense; possible defenses are not investigated properly because the appointed defense attorney is too overworked or too jaded. A person accused of such a serious crime needs an attorney known as a fighter for justice for his clients. A person accused of such a serious crime needs an attorney like Ezra C. Levy.
Ezra C. Levy was the youngest lawyer to be assigned the role of lead counsel by the Legal Aid Society in the defense of a client indicted for Murder in the First Degree. Armed with a thoroughly-investigated case, Ezra used phone records to prove that the prosecution’s star witness was nothing more than a woman scorned willing to play along with the prosecution’s theory of the case.
