Joe Hayden Quoted in Insider NJ Article Regarding the Guilty Verdict in the George Floyd Murder Trial
Joseph A. Hayden, Jr., Co-Chair of the Criminal Defense and Governmental and Internal Investigations practice at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted in the Insider NJ article, “Jury Finds Chauvin Guilty of the Murder of George Floyd.”
Justice was done by the speedy jury verdict,” said Joe Hayden, legal adviser to InsiderNJ. “There was no other reasonable verdict the jury could have returned under the proven facts. The prosecutor’s case was a rare combination of a video, which depicted the homicide, eyewitness testimony of people who tried to stop the homicide, medical testimony which showed the death was a homicide, and police use of force testimony indicating that the use of force was unjustified and resulted in a homicide. Given the verdict of homicide it was an automatic that bail would be revoked.”
