Partner Chris Clark Obtains Lowered Bond in High-Profile Murder Case
Posted By Patton & Pittman
Chris Clark, a partner at Patton & Pittman, successfully argued for a substantial bond reduction in one of Clarksville’s most high-profile murder cases last week. Clark represents a mother who has been charged, along with her husband, with the murder of her young child. During Clark’s cross-examination, the lead detective admitted to the court while under oath that she did not believe that the mother had caused the injuries that lead to the child’s death. She further testified that there were no witnesses or direct proof that the mother had caused any of the unfortunate injuries. The court immediately lowered the quarter-of-a-million dollar bond to $25,000.
