Earlier this week, Portland Defender attorney Troy Pickard successfully defended his client against a serious assault charge in Clackamas County. In case State v. A.B., Troy Pickard’s female client was accused of beating another woman so badly that the woman’s pregnancy miscarried.

The jury found the defendant not guilty and she was immediately released. During the trial, Troy Pickard attacked the prosecution’s claims and exposed the so-called “victim” as a liar, demonstrating that not only had Pickard’s client not committed a crime, but that the government’s “victim” had never suffered any injury at all.
