Christopher Neal Jeppson
Scott C. Williams represented Christopher Neal Jeppson in federal court against allegations of perjury and making a false statement to a federal agent, and in state court against allegations of murder. After intense litigation including a week-long preliminary hearing, suppression hearings, hearings resulting in the government being forced to provide information, and a hearing whether Mr. Jeppson's passed polygraph would be admitted to trial, the matter was resolved to a No Contest plea to obstruction of justice with a sentence equal to and concurrent to his federal sentence.
