"I told him we could get cell phone records to confirm that his phone was not at the scene of the crime at the time of the shooting. And if we could show that it was active (meaning he was using it) it could help cement his alibi.

So… several months and a lot of work later… the cell phone records literally show him at the [email protected]#king crime scene at the time of the shooting. It also leads to more evidence more directly linking him to the shooting. The records also managed to implicate his friend as being involved. It took the case from being borderline to a slam dunk for the DA."
