State of New Jersey v. X. S.: Murder


In this homicide case, Mr. Rickards’ client, in addition to two co-defendants, were accused of robbing a man, who was sitting on the steps of his apartment building about one mile from Rutgers University during the early morning hours, at knife point. The victim was stabbed with a “sharp object” and retreated inside to his apartment, but subsequently died of his injuries. 

There was considerable evidence against eighteen-year-old Mr. S. and his accomplices including video surveillance, statements to the police admitting guilt, as well as cell phone tracking. 

Originally facing a lifetime prison sentence, Mr. Rickards was able to negotiate a plea agreement on behalf of his client in which Mr. S. was sentenced to a 20-year prison term.
