Our Congratulations to GRACE Board member Robert McGlasson and the entire Nichols team!!!!

Posted December 12, 2008

After the four days of deliberations, the judge in Brian Nichols case declared the jury hung.  GRACE board member, Robert McGlasson, served as second chair attorney along with first chair Henderson Hill.   

At 5pm on November 12th, over the objections of the defense, the judge sent the jury back for two more hours of deliberation when the foreman explained that they had not reached a unanimous verdict, required for the death penalty in Georgia.  They returned at 7:00 pm, divided 9 - 3, and the judge declared the jury deadlocked.  The judge will impose a sentence on Saturday. 

Brian Nichols was convicted of murdering four people in a courthouse shooting in 2005.  Mr. Nichols life was saved by the hard work, compassion, brilliance of his attorneys.
