Not Guilty Verdict- Murder in the Second Degree- Hennepin County

Johnson was charged with Second Degree Murder on June 11, 2009 after him and another male struggled over a handgun near the intersection of 52nd Av. N. and N. 6th St. in Minneapolis.

The State tried to convince the jury that this was a drug deal gone bad; However, Attorney Bruce Rivers argued that the decedent was the one who pulled out the gun first and that is when the struggle took place.

The trial took approximately one week and the jury deliberated for an hour before they came back with their NOT GUILTY verdict.
