On April 1, 2014, a Rankin County jury found a Kelly Law Office client not guilty of felony assault. The Rankin County citizen was tried in a case lasting two days in Rankin County Circuit Court. The panel of 12 Rankin County jurors returned a unanimous verdict of “Not Guilty” to Rankin County attorney Jim Kelly’s client. In a statement, Mr. Kelly said “I don’t think the jury believed the complaining witness. The system works.” During the trial, Rankin County attorney Jim Kelly reminded the jury that returning a verdict of “Not Guilty” is in fact enforcing the law as long as reasonable doubt exists.
