Proper Counsel

Piketon, OH: (Jan-17-08) Kenneth Moore, a man who admitted to shooting and killing a man was freed from prison after winning an appeal, brought a lawsuit against the State of Ohio, alleging that he didn't receive proper counsel. Records stated that Darrel Benner was fatally shot 13 years ago inside a Piketon home. Moore, who admitted to pulling the trigger, later told a court that he was responsible for the shooting. Moore was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison, but nine years after his sentencing, Moore appealed his conviction on the grounds that he did not receive proper counsel. Court records show that a jury found Moore not guilty, despite the witness accounts and Moore's admission to the court. In a wrongful imprisonment lawsuit, Moore stands to receive $600,000 settlement from the state as compensation. [WBNS NEWS: PROPER COUNSEL]
