3rd Circuit Reverses Conviction
In a major legal victory, in the case of, United States v. Manny Baker, 221 F. 3d 438 (3d Cir. 2000), the Third Circuit reversed the conviction of Manny Baker after Hope C. Lefeber's impassioned arguments on appeal.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit agreed with Ms. Lefeber's argument that the search violated Baker's constitutional rights.
Baker had been convicted with a different lawyer at trial and sentenced to 23 years in jail on drug charges. Ms. Lefeber raised the legality of the search for the parole violation, and the Court of Appeals reversed the conviction. Ms. Lefeber's client was immediately released and is a free man and a hard-working, law abiding citizen today.
