Modesto Attorney Frank Carson, a dedicated headline chaser, has allowed a client of his to be abused by the District Attorney. He is representing (name withheld due to age) who has been charged with five felony counts for participating in a joy rides with a few friends. His actions consisted of driving golf carts on the Grounds of Stanislaus State University.
The carts never left the grounds but all were hit with five counts of auto theft. This would seem to be an egregious miscarriage of justice. But our friend Frank, despite having been paid, has as of yet to provide an active, aggressive defense. We sincerely hope Mr. Carson will turn this sad situation around and help this family.
Attempts were made to offer Mr. Carson an opportunity to explain his lack of activity but to this point he has failed to return calls.
We will be following this situation closely.
