Houston Criminal Lawyer James Sullivan Asks for Mercy from Jurors



Houston criminal defense lawyer James Sullivan represents clients at trial. While Sullivan works hard to win every case, the reality is that many, if not most, accused committed the offense and some were even caught in the act. On these cases, the definition of "winning" must also include beating the best offer from the government.  

One recent jury trial illustrates this principle. Sullivan represented a man in a Harris County Criminal District Court accused of sexual assault. The testimonial and physical evidence was overwhelming and convincing. The man was found guilty by the jury. However, Sullivan persuaded the jury to be merciful to the accused and they recommended probation to the judge.
"Go and learn what the Scriptures mean when they say, 'Instead of offering sacrifices to Me, I want you to be merciful to others.'  I didn't come to invite good people to be my followers.  I came to invite sinners". ~Matthew 9:13
