Post Trial Update

Today, Ed Buck's attorneys Christopher Darden and Ludlow Creary II are expected to file a motion for a judgment of acquittal. Defendants must do this within seven days of the guilty verdict, or after the court discharges the jury, whichever occurs later.


A motion for judgment of acquittal rests on the claim that the evidence at trial was insufficient for a conviction. In other words, Ed Buck's attorneys are going argue that no reasonable jury could possibly find guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.


They are going to ask Judge Snyder to acquit Ed Buck on all of the charges.

It is highly unlikely they will be successful. But just in case, I suggest DA George Gascon be ready to pick up the ball.
