Karen Connolly represented the defendant on post-conviction relief after the district court denied his request to withdraw his guilty plea to two counts of first degree murder. On appeal, the Nevada Supreme Court reversed the district court’s ruling. The defendant is now scheduled to proceed to trial.
Defendant charged with a felony battery constituting domestic violence - strangulation, victim 60 years of age or older and battery constituting domestic violence. As a result of Ms. Connolly's advocacy, charges were reduced to a simple battery.
