In Grant Dwyer’s first Attempted Murder case, there were two eye-witness victims who gave immediate statements to the police, naming the defendant. There was DNA and blood evidence. The defendant was arrested by a SWAT team in the very place the crime allegedly happened. The weapon was found in the same room. The defendant was facing over seventy years if convicted, but Grant Dwyer investigated the case, wrote legal motions, and got the defendant out of jail on a plea with only five years of probation.
