Frank Reeves' Attorney Talks Bond Denial, Defense Strategy
"My Client has a defense to this killing and every killing isn't murder, there are situations where it is justified." -Veronica Brinson/Frank Reeves' Attorney
Friday, Judge Howard Simms denied Frank Louis Reeves to bond out of the Bibb LEC.
Reeves is accused of gunning down 65 year old Linda Hunnicutt last month at a Gray Highway gas station.
Brinson says she takes issue with some of the language in the bond denial order, specifically, the language about the shooting itself.
"We were a little bit concerned not a little bit, a lot concerned about the court's order indicating that it was an unprovoked shooting. We don't know the facts at this early in this process and we thought that was a little bit strong." -Veronica Brinson/Frank Reeves' Attorney
Its apparent the Brinson plans to make the argument that Reeves acted in self defense, and she says she has some evidence she's not yet revealed.
"His Wheelchair and her car had some contact. He felt threatened. When we have an opportunity to present the full picture, we will share his side of the story. At this juncture, being considerate of individuals who are grieving we have not shared the entire confrontation that occurred on that day and basically that's been my call because I felt like we wanted people to grieve in peace." -Veronica Brinson/Frank Reeves' Attorney
Obviously this is a case that has been closely followed by the media and Brinson voiced concerns that the coverage may inhibit Reeves' chances for a fair trial.
"You know we're very concerned because this is a case which has garnered media attention many of the jury pool will have read the order and have listened to the media and to have those comments made we feel may eventually prejudiced our case." -Veronica Brinson/Frank Reeves' Attorney
