Kevin Curtis’ attorneys also know what it feels like to be falsely accused.
In just the past few years, both were.
Hal Neilson came away from a two-week criminal trial found “not guilty” on federal charges. In its aftermath, he vowed to take up the cause of people wrongly prosecuted.
Christi R. McCoy, who was Neilson’s attorney in that trial, lost her chance at being Mississippi’s first female U.S. attorney when the Obama Administration put her name on ice because someone told them her legal investigator violated the law somehow.
Speaking from experience, Neilson said, “There’s nothing worse than someone falsely charged. I’m pleased the government saw what Christi and I saw,” which was nothing.
