Robert Higbee Verdict: Not Guilty
I have to say that I am a little surprised. I really thought Higbee was done for since a not guilty verdict should have came on Friday. Regardless, it was the right result and I am happy for him. Luckily the jury saw right through what was mostly a nice presentation by the Prosecutor. In the end, I think it all boiled down to common sense: is this some crazy trooper that blows through stop signs or can a person make one tragic mistake in their life? Higbee’s experience and lack of any discipline problems really helped him out as it was rather obvious that this was just a really bad mistake.
