WHAT IS WRITTEN ABOUT: James Shellow

 

Jeralyn Merritt writes
In my second federal criminal trial ages and ages ago, my client was charged with selling a pound of cocaine to an undercover agent. I had my client retain both a chemist from the University of Colorado and a renowned defense attorney, James Shellow from Wisconsin as co-counsel, who specialized in challenging forensic drug evidence. During Jim’s cross-examination of the chemist, it turned out she made changes to her findings on the plane ride to Denver. The prosecutor, who years later became a federal judge, offered us a misdemeanor when she admitted that. Our client got probation.

I spoke with Jim Shellow the other day....he’s 82 now and about to release a new book on challenging forensic drug evidence. He’s also coming to the NORML Key West legal conference in December to tell us all about it.
